Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you love Chinatown, then you’ll love The Big Goodbye―and it’s good reading for any American cinema buff.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Inimitable Wasson…argues convincingly that Chinatown was one of the last great Hollywood films… this portrait of a neonoir classic will cast a spell over cinephiles.”
Library Journal, starred review

"Wasson…is one of the great chroniclers of Hollywood lore. And he has truly outdone himself this time."
—The New York Times

"One of the best things about this audiobook is author Sam Wasson's narration. His modulation and timing are as good as any professional narrator's, and his use of accents provides subtle shading to everyone from John Huston to Henry Kissinger."
AudioFile Magazine, Earphones Award Winner

About the Author

Sam Wasson is the author of six books including the bestselling Fosse and Fifth Avenue, 5 AM: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman. He lives in Los Angeles.
