Jim Henson  The Biography, Brian Jay Jones
2 Brian Jay Jones Jim Henson The Biography
Ballantine Books 2013 0345526112 / 9780345526113 Hardcover New New 
For the first time ever - a comprehensive bio of one of the 20th century's most innovative creative artists: the irreplaceable Jim Henson. He was a gentle dreamer, one who most people came to know through his iconic and beloved characters; the Muppets. Drawing on interviews with Henson's family, as well as unprecedented access to private family and company archives, the author explores the man and the Muppets. It is an intimate portrait that captures all aspects including his professional and intensely private life. His Christian Science upbringing, his love of fast cars and expensive art, and his weakness for women are all explored. Though an optimist, he was haunted by the notion he would not live long enough to do all the things he envisioned - a fear that tragically came to fruition. This is an up close portrait of a legend.
