"Savage Grace"--soon to be a major motion picture--tells the epic story of the Baekelands, the rich and beautiful heirs to the Bakelite plastics fortune whose glamorous life belies the family's shocking secrets that result in incest, murder, and suicide. Illustrated.
A spellbinding tale of money and madness, incest and matricide, "Savage Grace" is the saga of Brooks Baekeland, heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune; his beautiful wife, Barbara; and their handsome, gentle son, Tony, who destroyed the whole family in a violent chain of events.
"Savage Grace" unfolds against a glamorous international background (New York, London, Paris, Italy, Spain); features a nonpareil cast of characters (including Salvador Dali, James Jones, the Astors, the Vanderbilts, and European nobility); and tells the doomed Baekelands' story through remarkably candid interviews and private letters and diaries, not to mention confidential hospital, State Department, and prison documents. A true-crime classic, it exposes the envied lives of the rich and beautiful, and brilliantly illuminates the darkest corners of the American Dream.
