Live Fast, Die Young: Remembering the Short Life of James Dean is a first — revealing James Dean from the inside out by someone who knew him intimately. Author John Gilmore recalls his first meeting with Dean in New York, their fast friendship, their riding motorcycles together, and their sexual encounters with women, men and each other.
Dean’s insights into his own Broadway success and the films that followed are revealed through Gilmore’s story as well as Dean’s feelings of hatred toward a disapproving father; his intimacy with his mother and their secret games that later led to Dean’s sexual confusion in Hollywood; Dean’s obsession with death; and, finally, the posthumous rise of the legend.
