No Hollywood star has risen so brightly, after so big a fall, as the man who returned from a decade in straight-to-video Hell to reclaim adulation as a lovable hit man in Pulp Fiction. Nigel Andrew wittily scans the mother-dominated childhood in New Jersey; the years of life- endangering fan assault; the refuge in Scientology; the night his piloting exploits brought three major airports to standstill; and, with unique insights and revelations from the film-makers who have worked with him, the "comeback" years of high achievement as an actor.
