SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE THE GOLDEN AGE OF HOLLYWOOD, A YOUNG BRITISH ACTOR, A LOVE AFFAIR, AND A TRAGEDY, FILM STARS DON'T DIE IN LIVERPOOL IS THE TOUCHING STORY OF THE LAST DAYS OF A HOLLYWOOD ICON. On September 29, 1981, Peter Turner received a phone call that would change his life. His former lover, Hollywood actress Gloria Grahame, had collapsed in a Lancaster hotel and was refusing medical attention. He took her into his chaotic and often eccentric family's home in Liverpool to see her through her last days. Though their affair had ended years before, it was to him that she turned in her final hour of need. Taking place over the course of three weeks in Turner's larger-than-life working-class family home, Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool is an affectionate, moving, and wryly humorous memoir of friendship, love, and stardom.
