Review: Behind the Candelabra

User Review  - Schizophelia - Goodreads

An altogether sad tale told (almost regretfully) by Scott Thorson, the ex-boyfriend of the late Liberace. Wide-eyed and fresh out of a traumatic childhood, Thorson meets the narcissistic Liberace and ... Read full review

I choose this as an airplane read when Amazon offered it for $1.99, curious to read the source material for the HBO film. Thorson had a good ghost writer, and it was better than I expected ... Read full review

User Review  - Mediaman - Goodreads

The HBO movie made me want to read this ahead of time and it's hard to know what in the book could possibly be used in a film--there is almost nothing to the story. The "author" Scott Thorson ... Read full review

When I was growing up, there were two men on television I found totally repugnant. One was Milton Berle, and the other was Liberace. I usually don't read biographies or autobiographies because there's ... Read full review

User Review  - Nona Raines - Goodreads

Okay, I had to read this book after seeing the HBO movie. Maybe I'm gullible/naive, but I believe this book is a decent representation of Thorson's life with Liberace. One of Dr. Phil's folksy remarks ... Read full review
