I love Burt Bacharach, in a fervently obsessed/maybe let's get a restraining order kind of way. It comes as no surprise that I consumed this biography whole, marveling over his relationships with Hal David, Dionne Warwick, and even Marlene Dietrich.

Bacharach, one of the greatest songwriters of all time, offers a frank and riveting account of his unparalleled life. From his tumultuous marriages and the tragic suicide of his daughter, to his star-studded collaboration, he details his long-lasting success and never-before-told stories.
