From the indefatigable Wallace family, authors of The Book of Lists and The People’s Almanac series (New York Times bestsellers that sold over eight million copies internationally), came 1981’s The Intimate Sex Lives of Famous People.
This compelling bestseller that kept many a reader up at night with its two hundred revealing profiles and three hundred rare photos just got better with a dozen new entries on the nocturnal fascinations of the iconic Tupac Shakur, Carlos Casteneda, Jim Morrison, Nico, Wilt Chamberlain, Ayn Rand, Kurt Cobain, Princess Diana, Aleister Crowley, Anna Nicole Smith, Michael Hutchence, and Malcolm X.
Irving Wallace was the famous novelist and screenwriting author of The Chapman Report and The Word. His wife, Sylvia Wallace, wrote the best-selling novel The Fountains. The Wallace family’s publishing magic lives on with Amy Wallace, author of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice: My Life with Carlos Castaneda, and David Wallechinsky, author of The Complete Book of the Summer Olympics and Tyrants: The World’s Worst Dictators.
