Pauline Kael

ebook
"A smart and eminently readable examination of the life and career of one of the twentieth century's most influential movie critics."Los Angeles Times
"Engrossing and thoroughly researched."Entertainment Weekly
A New York Times Book Review Notable Book of 2011

The first major biography of the most influential, powerful, and controversial film critic of the twentieth century

Pauline Kael was, in the words of Entertainment Weekly's movie reviewer Owen Gleiberman, "the Elvis or Beatles of film criticism." During her tenure at The New Yorker from 1968 to 1991, she was the most widely read and, often enough, the most provocative critic in America. In this first full-length biography of the legend who changed the face of film criticism, acclaimed author Brian Kellow (author of Can I Go Now?: The Life of Sue Mengers, Hollywood's First Superagent) gives readers a richly detailed view of Kael's remarkable life—from her youth in rural California to her early struggles to establish her writing career to her peak years at The New Yorker.
