    I read this entire biography in one night one sitting that probably tells you how much I was captivated by the read since it clocked in at about 475 pages on the galley read To make a confession I knew Joe Dallesandro by name by indirect reference because of his inspiration for Megan Hart's Collide and also in terms of his latter film work I'm 30 years old at the time I'm writing this review so I'm uite a few generations younger than when many of Dallesandro's early films were released but I had very little idea about the extent of his history This was an eye opening read for me Eye opening in ways than one See what I did there?There's a combination of his respective history in film in TV as a model and his overarching biography along with a beautiful array of photographs on the sets of his various projects and from Dallesandro's own contributions I think Michael Ferguson did an outstanding job compiling Dallesandro's history experiences and influence as well as a nice filmography at the end of the work tracing Dallesandro's acting history to the present day You can tell this biography was well researched intimate to details and a narrative worth returning to for reference It even features a foreword from Dallesandro himselfA recommended readOverall score 45 starsNote I received this as an ARC from NetGalley from the publisher Open Road Media
