Polanski: A biography
Polanski: A biography
by Christopher Sandford
Macmillan, September 2008

It is a pity that there are so many stains on [Polanski’s] record, but there are few stains on his films. In this fine biography, Sandford gives those films the praise they deserve, and he is fair as well to Polanski the man. – Washington Post
