Rereleased to coincide with Ed Wood, a Tim Burton movie based on the book, this authoritative underground biography brings to life the renegade filmmaker.

“Finally the Ed Wood story told in all its naked wonder. Nightmare of Ecstasy is an hilarious but heartbreaking portrayal of a brave, eccentric and sometimes insane film director. I stayed up all night reading it with my mouth hanging open.” — John Waters.

“Stranger, weirder, more tragic than the Ed Wood movie.” Edward Everett Horton
