    However much is true, however much really happened that way, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls How The Sex N Drugs N Rock N Generation Saved Hollywood by Peter Biskind remains one of my favorite non fiction reads For those who hear film history and think Titanic, in 1967, the major American film studios were in such disarray and the counterculture seemed to be overturning

    This book is alternately fabulous and frustrating In the fabulous column, Biskind is to be commended for his incredibly thorough research How he got an interview with producer Bert Schneider is beyond my comprehension the guy is a total recluse, and one of the most fascinating figures in Hollywood history I love the way he puts across the story telling abilities of his

    My thoughts on Easy Riders, Raging Bulls can be summarized by two comparisons 1 Game Change Both books let gossip get in the way of solid storytelling Game Change would give paragraphs of great accounts of political strategy which is right in my wheelhouse then get sidetracked with anecdotes of how Elizabeth Edwards is a bitch, John Edwards is a dandy, and what Hilary Clinton wore
