You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again

Julia Phillips

"The Hollywood memoir that tells all . . . Sex. Drugs. Greed. Why, it sounds just like a movie."--The New York Times

Every memoir claims to bare it all, but Julia Phillips's actually does. This is an addictive, gloves-off exposé from the producer of the classic films The Sting, Taxi Driver, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind--and the first woman ever to win an Academy Award for Best Picture--who made her name in Hollywood during the halcyon seventies and the yuppie-infested eighties and lived to tell the tale. Wickedly funny and surprisingly moving, You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again takes you on a trip through the dream-manufacturing capital of the world and into the vortex of drug addiction and rehab on the arm of one who saw it all, did it all, and took her leave.
