Yale has just published the surviving diaries of acting icon and Hollywood celebrity Richard Burton (as featured in The Telegraph). Starting when he was 14 and running throughout his eventful life, The Richard Burton Diaries (edited by Chris Williams) reveal a man quite different from the one we ‘know’ as acclaimed actor, film star and jet-set celebrity. Covering the actor's varied career and the years of his celebrated marriages to Elizabeth Taylor, these revealing and poignant diaries are one of the highlights of Yale's Autumn/Winter season.
