Long before Brad and Angelina, there was Liz and Dick. Furious Love: Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, and the Marriage of the Century ($16) takes readers deep into their world of pain and love. During the making of Cleopatra, Taylor and Burton met and began a romance, receiving much attention, as both were married to other spouses at the time. While they were eventually married, divorced, and remarried to each other 16 months later, their love was a whirlwind. A behind-the-scenes tour of one of the most publicly scrutinized romances of the 20th century, this book is a portrait of doomed love, page turning, and heart wrenching as ever.
