Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

A collection of over fifty stories by American screen writers on the first time they received money for their writing, with thoughts on what it really takes to succeed in Hollywood. The list of contributors includes many well-known screenwriters, including Richard LaGravanese, author of The Horse Whisperer who first worked writing phone sex scripts, and Cameron Crowe, who wrote Jerry McGuire, and his shock at the success of his earlier films. Written casually, often humorously, for anybody interested in "the business", or just in Hollywood lore.
