Liberace: Behind the Music

This unofficial biography of Liberace tracks his life from his humble beginnings in a Milwaukee suburb through his major life highs and lows culminating with the highly publicized palimony lawsuit filed by his former limo driver and live-in boyfriend of five years, and his failing health ending with his death at age 67 from AIDS complications. Fueled by the intense poverty of his youth, Walter Valentino Liberace is determined to become the world's greatest entertainer.
