Publisher Comments:

Patrick McGilligan continues his celebrated interviews with exceptional screenwriters in Backstory 5, focusing on the 1990s. The thirteen featured writers—Albert Brooks, Jean-Claude Carrière, Nora Ephron, Ronald Harwood, John Hughes, David Koepp, Richard LaGravenese, Barry Levinson, Eric Roth, John Sayles, Tom Stoppard, Barbara Turner, and Rudy Wurlitzer—are not confined to the 1990s, but their engrossing, detailed, and richly personal stories create, in McGilligans words, “a snapshot of a profession in motion.” Emphasizing the craft of writing and the process of collaboration, this new volume looks at how Hollywood is changing to meet new economic and creative challenges. Backstory 5 explores how these writers come up with their ideas, how they go about adapting a stage play or work of fiction, how they organize and structure their work, and much more.

Synopsis:

"I hope Patrick McGilligan keeps doing his invaluable Backstory series as long as there is cinema. No books more clearly elucidate the actual messy, infuriating, and wildly creative process of moviemaking. If you want to know the truth about how films are made today, Backstory 5 is the place to find it."—Joseph McBride, author of Searching for John Ford and Steven Spielberg: A Biography

"Pat McGilligan is the great American film historian, and the Backstory series is his epic, subversive account of how movies are really made. Backstory 5, like the volumes before it, is entertaining, eye-opening and indispensable."—Lee Server, author of Robert Mitchum: Baby I Don't Care and Ava Gardner: Love is Nothing
