Hollywood non-fiction titles to check out


Life Moves Pretty Fast by Hadley Freeman
Complete with exclusive interviews from writers, directors and stars of our best loved cult classics this book details the lessons we learned from watching eighties movies and why those lessons are missing from the movies we watch today. 

1971 is the year that rock music exploded onto the scene bringing with it stars like David Bowie, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.  This book is a love song to the music of 1971 and an homage to its artists. 

This is the untold story of Hollywood’s Creative Artists Agency the talent agency who over the last four decades has influenced film, television, sports, music and business ventures throughout the world.
