Críticas:

Praise for "Five Easy Decades: How Jack Nicholson Became the Biggest Movie Star in Modern Times" "Dennis McDougal is a rare Hollywood reporter: honest, fearless, nobody's fool. This is unvarnished Jack for Jack-lovers and Jack-skeptics but, also, for anyone interested in the state of American culture and celebrity. I always read Mr. McDougal for pointers but worry that he will end up in a tin drum off the coast of New Jersey." --Patrick McGilligan, author of "Jack's Life and Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light" Praise for "Privileged Son: Otis Chandler and the Rise and Fall of the L.A. Times Dynasty" "A great freeway pileup--part biography, part dysfunctional family chronicle, and part institutional and urban history, with generous dollops of scandal and gossip." --Hendrick Hertzberg, " The New Yorker" "McDougal has managed to scale the high walls that have long protected the Chandler clan and returned with wicked tales told by angry ex-wives and jealous siblings." --"The Washington Post" Praise for "The Last Mogul: Lew Wasserman, MCA and the Hidden History of Hollywood" "Real glamour needs a dark side. That is part of the fascination of Dennis McDougal's wonderful book." --"The Economist" "Thoroughly reported and engrossing . . . the most noteworthy trait of MCA was how it hid its power." --"The New York Times Book Review" "Over the years, I've read hundreds of books on Hollywood and the movie business, and this one is right at the top." --Michael Blowen, "The Boston Globe"

Reseña del editor:

The ultimate biography of the musical icon. Bob Dylan is a music hero to generations. He's also an international bestselling artist, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, and an Oscar winner for "Things Have Changed." His career is stronger and more influential than ever. How did this happen, given the road to oblivion he seemed to choose more than two decades ago? Dylan's 72, and this final act of his career is more interesting than ever--yet the classic biographies like "Bob Dylan: Behind the Shades "(first published 1991, updated 2001) and even his own "Chronicles: Volume One" (published 2005) came too soon to cover this act. Now this groundbreaking biography digs deep into Bob Dylan lore--including subjects Dylan himself left out of "Chronicles: Volume One." "Dylan: The Biography" moves beyond analysis of lyrics or well-worn biographical facts to focus on why this beloved artist's American odyssey has touched so many souls--and how both Dylan and his audience have changed along the way. What happened during the past two decades to transform a heroin addict into one of the most astonishing literary and musical icons in American history? Through extensive interviews and connections with Dylan's friends, family, sidemen, and fans, "Los Angeles Times" journalist Dennis McDougal builds a new understanding of Dylan, as well as the real story behind the myths. Was his romantic life, especially with Sara Dylan, much more complicated than it appears? Was his motorcycle accident a cover for drug rehab? What really happened to Dylan when his career fell apart, and how did he find his way back? To what does "he "attribute his astonishing success? McDougal's interviews and meticulous research offer a revealing new understanding of these older questions--and of the new chapter Dylan is writing in his life and career.
