As in the movie, this book tells the story of Scott Thorson who lived with and worked for Liberace. Scott Thorson, a poor boy from a succession of foster homes, met Liberace when he was just 16 years old. Liberace, aged 57, took Scott under his wing as »the son he'd never had«. By the time Scott was 17, he also was Liberace's lover. Liberace lived life with his credo »too much of a good thing is wonderful« and Scott shared in it: the fur coats, the Rolls-Royces, the jewellery, the celebrity friends, the 26 lapdogs. A more opulent lifestyle is hard to imagine but it came at a price: Liberace sent Scott to his plastic surgeon to have his face remodelled in Liberace's own image. By turns bizarre, and touchingly intimate, this memoir is a compulsive insight into Liberace.
