New York, NY: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1989. First Edition. Hardcover. “A book about the Huston family is a book with an extensive historical sweep, covering a history not just of Hollywood, but also of vaudeville and the legitimate theater in America; examining not only the people and events in the lives of Walter, John, Anjelica, and her brothers and sister, but also the ways in which the Hustons have revealed themselves through their work.”--Lawrence Grobel, from inside front cover of dust-jacket. Lawrence Grobel, author of over 25 books, and contributor to numerous publications such as “The New York Times”, “Rolling Stone”, and “Entertainment Weekly” among many others, is a writer who offers some of the most in depth and well written biographies available today. Among this impressive oeuvre is the topic of today's particular curation, “The Hustons” (1989). A refreshingly candid biography, “The Hustons” chronicles the remarkable story of the Huston family, which boasts three Oscar winners, from Walter to John to Anjelica, with particular attention to the rich career and often calamitous personal life of director/actor John Huston (1906-1987). A remarkably detailed, exciting, and endlessly entertaining volume for lovers of film, culture, and history.
