In March of 2006, Robert Osborne shared his thoughts on the authorized Lorre biography – “What I read most of the time are biographies. I don't read fiction because I feel I get enough fiction from the movies I see . . . There's also a wonderful one out now on Peter Lorre: The Lost One by Stephen D. Youngkin.”

Mr. Osborne’s review is one of many in the “Critics Are Saying” section of The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre website.

The Lost One: A Life of Peter Lorre is available in hard-back and soft-bound editions, as well as eBooks for the Kindle and Nook.
