Nick Davis Competing with Idiots: Herman and Joe Mankiewicz, a Dual Portrait
A fascinating, complex biography of Hollywood’s
most dazzling and famous brothers, one most
famous for writing Citizen Kane; the other, All About Eve. In this moving portrait,
woven together by Davis, the grandson of Herman and great-nephew of Joe, we see
the lives of these two men–their dreams and desires, their fears and feuds–struggling
to free themselves from their dark past and a system they loved and hated.
Leslie Epstein Hill of Beans: A Novel of War and Celluloid
Epstein’s Hill of Beans is the story of how one nation, one industry, and in particular one man responded to desperate hope. This is the novel that Epstein,the son and nephew of Philip and Julius Epstein, the screenwriters of Casablanca, was born to write.
