Drawing on interviews, letters, diaries, and other documents still in private hands, The Brothers Mankiewicz: Hope, Heartbreak, and Hollywood Classics provides a uniquely intimate behind-the-scenes chronicle of the lives, loves, work, and relationship between these complex men. Sydney Ladensohn Stern’s dual biography of screenwriter/director brothers Herman and Joseph L. Mankieiwcz, was called “beautifully researched and deftly structured” by the Wall Street Journal and “an UNUSUALLY well written biography” by Terry Teachout.
