Ingrid Millar, fixated on what she politely calls Neeson’s, ahem, ”wedding tackle,” has written something considerably less than a biography with Liam Neeson: The First Biography. In fact, it’s more like a gossip column. There are photo captions like ”…that inimitable look of the soul in torment” and utterly vapid descriptions of the actor’s romances with Brooke Shields, Barbra Streisand, Sinéad O’Connor, Julia Roberts, and Natasha Richardson (whom Neeson married). Millar does open a few tantalizing doors into Neeson’s life, but she just peeks in and skitters on. Though the author has interviewed Neeson, either he didn’t talk much or she didn’t really listen.
