A. Scott Berg is the author of four bestselling biographies: Max Perkins: Editor of Genius, winner of the National Book Award; Goldwyn; Lindbergh, winner of the Pulitzer Prize; and Kate Remembered. He lives in Los Angeles.
His new book, Wilson, a biography of President Woodrow Wilson, will be available Fall 2013 from Putnam Books.
Among the legendary Hollywood moguls, Samuel Goldwyn occupies a special place, if not for his famed "Goldwyn touch" (indicating a film project with distinction) or his malapropisms, then for his fierce independence. He broke into the business in 1913 with partners Jesse Lasky and Cecil B. DeMille, but Goldwyn soon personified his most famous "Goldwynism," "Include me out," forming his own company. Among his classics (with director William Wyler) are Dodsworth , Wuthering Heights , and The Best Years of Our Lives . Granted complete access to Goldwyn's archives, Berg has produced a lively portrait which bears none of the earmarks of an authorized, sanitized biography. Recommended for all collections.
