							From the moment Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Jackson met, they were hooked on each other. Soon a deep friendship blossomed, unexpectedly unlike anything either had ever experienced. Through thick and thin, through their various emotional upheavals, through the peaks and valleys of their careers, through their personal traumas and heartaches, through the unending health issues and extreme physical pain that each experienced, and through the glare of the often merciless public spotlight, their bond held them together, and their love for each other endured. Donald Bogle skillfully recreates the moving narrative of Taylor and Jackson's experiences together and their intense emotional connection, without shying away from the controversies that swirled around them. Through interviews with friends and acquaintances of the two stars, as well as anonymous but credible sources, Elizabeth and Michael emerges as a tender, intimate look at this famous "odd couple" and a treasure to their millions o f fans.

"Exhaustively researched...with a fresh and fair-minded perspective...Devoted fans of either star may be familiar with much of this material, but they will appreciate the balance and compassion underscoring Bogle's treatment. A grounded and consistently absorbing biography." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"The friendship between Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor seemed both impossible and inevitable. In Elizabeth & Michael, Donald Bogle explores and explains the irresistible attraction between these two forces of nature, and digs into the extraordinary histories that made them uniquely suited to understanding each other." - Alan Light, author of Let's Go Crazy: Prince and the Making of Purple Rain

"A surprisingly comprehensive, sensitive and entertaining look at Taylor and Jackson, and not just their friendship...Bogle has, essentially, written three books in one: Taylor's biography, Jackson's and the tale of their mutual coming together, the how and why...The writer knows his subjects and his back-and-forth joint bios of Taylor and Jackson are extremely well done." - Liz Smith, New York Social Diary

"A grounded consistently absorbing biography." - Kirkus Reviews

"Biographer Bogle takes a nuanced look at the life-sustaining friendship between the Queen of Hollywood and the King of Pop." - People Magazine
