This film producer’s honest, hilarious behind-the-scenes memoir “details the planning, handholding and power games involved in making movies” (Publishers Weekly).
Art Linson has had a hand in producing some of the most unforgettable films of the past half-century—Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Untouchables, Fight Club—and has worked with some of America’s finest actors and directors. In what the Los Angeles Times calls “a breezy anatomy of ritual humiliation,” his memoir gives us a brutally honest, funny, and comprehensive tour through the horrors of Hollywood.
“Art Linson puts a film freak exactly where he or she wants to be: in the Fox screening room during the studio brass’s horrified first look at Fight Club…Linson gives readers a glimpse into a bizarre world where ‘It’s good’ is the absolute worst thing you can say about a movie.” —Entertainment Weekly
