Wired: The Short Life & Fast Times of John Belushi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wired is told with the same narrative style that Woodward employed so effectively in All the President’s Men and The Final Days” (Chicago Tribune).

On March 5, 1982, John Belushi was found dead of a drug overdose in a hotel room off Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles. At thirty-three his extraordinary and anarchic comic genius had captivated his generation. Rising to fame on NBC television’s Saturday Night Live, Belushi starred in the films Animal House and The Blues Brothers. What had gone wrong? Why was he dead?

Bob Woodward decided to find out by following Belushi’s trail from his hometown of Wheaton, Illinois, to the heart of the Hollywood star system. The result is one of the great Hollywood tragedies, captured in stark, spellbinding detail in this classic biography of a great American talent.

Synopsis:

andlt;Bandgt;andlt;Iandgt;Belushiandlt;/Iandgt;andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The outrageous talent, addicted to life, with a huge appetite for drugs, food, and pleasure. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;andlt;Bandgt;andlt;Iandgt;Belushiandlt;/Iandgt;andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;The star who plummeted over the edge. And the friends, wife, agents, and groupies who couldnand#8217;t stop him.
