A Los Angeles writer, Nancy K. Peardon has a long history in Hollywood. As a young woman she worked as an assistant to her father, a prestigious Beverly Hills dentist with an extensive list of famous patients, among them James Dean, Lucille Ball, and Montgomery Clift, to name only a few. After her father retired, Nancy went on to work in the entertainment industry, where she served as an Executive Assistant to some of the most renowned directors and producers in Hollywood. But none of her relationships were as compelling, complex, and ultimately as personal as her relationship with Marlon Brando. In her debut memoir, Marlon Brando: A Memoir, Nancy shares an intimate look, a deep and loving look, at Marlon, the man, himself.
