Dennis McDougal

What was our government really doing during the VietNam War?  Author Dennis McDougal will talk about the experiments that were conducted aboard a spy ship to three young men, all wondering why they were there in the first place, as told in his first novel, The Candlestickmaker. 

Most recently author of Five Easy Decades: How Jack Nicholson Became the Biggest Movie Star in Modern Time (John Wiley & Sons, 2008), Dennis McDougal has chronicled Hollywood, crime and the media for over 30 years. His forthcoming Things Have Changed (John Wiley & Sons, 2011) is the new biography of music legend Bob Dylan.

Before turning his attention full-time to writing books in 1993, McDougal reported on the glamorous and occasionally corrupt aspects of Hollywood as a staff writer for 15 years at the Los Angeles Times. As a Times investigative reporter concentrating on movies, television and pop music, McDougal took readers behind the scenes of pop star Michael Jackson’s troubled career, beginning with his “Victory” tour in the early 1980s; exposed the waste and mismanagement of Band Aid, USA for Africa, Farm Aid, and other “pop charities” of the 1980s; and followed celebrity courtroom dramas, such as the so-called “Cotton Club” murder trial, which featured former Paramount Pictures chief Robert Evans in a major supporting role.
