Abstract:

"JFK, Nixon, Oliver Stone and Me is the funny, thoughtful memoir of an accomplished former Congressional staffer who left D.C. for L.A. and a job with Oliver Stone, hoping to help make politically engaged films and a difference, and found himself instead in a wildly dysfunctional universe ruled by greed, paranoia, narcissism, competition, alcohol and drugs. His account of his journey from the Hill to Hollywood treats readers to a rollicking tour of the theater of politics and the politics of theater, and a thought-provoking meditation on the movies, media, politics, and the strange grey area in which they intertwine."--BOOK JACKET.
