Jack's Life: A Biography of Jack Nicholson Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Jack's Life: A Biography of Jack Nicholson

Jack Nicholson's life reveals here in full detail. The author made a research down to the bottom and we follow Jack since his parents' story to his stellar career: his work in exploitation films such as 'The little shop of horrors', his mainstream part in 'Easy rider' (1969), the period of greatness in the 70s with films such as 'Five Easy Pieces', 'Chinatown', 'The Last Detail' and 'One flew over the cuckoo's nest', and through all we find Jack's thoughts at every stage. Excerpts from interviews with magazines like Playboy are intimate and honest: his adiction to marijuana and later cocaine, his sexual apetites and what these women have to say about it.
