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.
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
