Tramp: The Life of Charlie Chaplin

'“Tramp is the best Hollywood biography I have ever read; beautifully written, painstakingly researched, unblinkingly shrewd in pursuit of Chaplin’s labyrinthine personality, and an analysis of the comedic art that is itself funny—a literary accomplishment even rarer than sexy sex scenes.” —Washington Times“Substantial . . . [A] well-researched, evenhanded portrait of a troubled entertainment genius . . . Milton’s clear rendering of one of the first film superstars, and of the fickle public scrutiny that followed him, doubles . . . as a sweeping look at the first half of the 20th century.” —Publishers Weekly“[A] masterful portrait of the artist as a swine . . . Milton presents a complex, insightful portrait of a man in whom genius and iniquity were inseparably combined.” —Kirkus Reviews“Fair, balanced, and highly readable . . . Milton has provided . . . a more complete view of [Chaplin’s] time in America than any previous biographer.” —Chicago Tribune“Compelling and provocative . . . The beam of limelight that Milton shines on Chaplin exposes much.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer'
