"Rebel", "oddball" and "Uncle Mickey": just three of the many conflicting labels Mickey Rourke has 'earned' over his remarkable career in the limelight. His public persona, moving from actor to boxer to actor, is not easy to define: making it all the more intriguing, and making Keri Walsh's study an unique and fascinating addition to the 'Film Stars' series.

Keri Walsh is Assistant Professor of English at Fordham University in New York.
