    Richard Burton's chiselled good looks, dark charisma and resonant voice made him one of the most admired actors of his day, while his bouts of drinking and tempestuous marriages to Elizabeth Taylor were seldom out of the tabloids. Throughout much of his life he kept an intimate diary, published here for the first time. Perceptive, humorous and indiscreet, it reveals the conflicted man behind the public image: proud, passionate, fiercely intelligent, awesomely well-read, yet self-lacerating and insecure.
