Mr. Strangelove: A Biography of Peter Sellers, Ed Sikov

There’s nothing upbeat to say about this book.

Don’t get me wrong–it’s a fine book, very readable, presumably accurate, but from page one, this is a portrait of a talented but very disturbed human being. He gets fame, fortune, artistic recognition, he even gets the girl(s), but he doesn’t ever seem happy, and he dies at age 54.
