"In and Out of Hollywood contains Higham's personal reflections on the stars he has known over the past forty years. Higham's memoir also charts his work as a political commentator, historian, poet, and playwright; describes the dangers and excitements of gay life before AIDS; and recounts his eventual discovery of a lasting relationship. In and Out of Hollywood is a tour through several decades of changing times and personalities behind the scenes of the American film world."--Jacket." ;
