Thank you, Elizabeth Hazard, of Book and Film Globe, for the interview! Also, to the editor/host, Neal Pollack of the Book and Film Globe Podcast for having me on their show (episode #078)
In it, we discuss:
- Spike Lee as the “King of Brooklyn” cinema
- John Travolta filming Saturday Night Fever at the height of his TV fame
- Wayne Wang and Paul Auster teaming up for 1995’s Smoke and Blue in the Face
- How I pulled the book together
- The French Connection’s infamous chase scene
- My podcasts and new book!
Here are a few images from my book for your viewing pleasure!
