Bruce Dern

A Memoir

One of Hollywood's biggest personalities, Bruce Dern is not afraid to say what he thinks. He has left an indelible mark on numerous projects, from critically acclaimed films to made-for-TV movies and television series. His notable credits include The Great Gatsby (1974), The 'Burbs (1989), Monster (2003), Django Unchained (2012), and Nebraska (2013), for which he won the Best Actor award at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. He also earned Oscar nominations for Best Supporting Actor in Coming Home (1978) and for Best Actor in Nebraska (2013).

In Bruce Dern: A Memoir, Christopher Fryer and Robert Crane help the outspoken star frame the fascinating tale of his life in Hollywood. Dern details the challenges he faced as an artist in a cutthroat business, his struggle against typecasting, and his thoughts on and relationships with other big names in the industry, including Elia Kazan, Alfred Hitchcock, Jack Nicholson, Paul Newman, Bob Dylan, Matt Damon, Jane Fonda, John Wayne, and Tom Hanks. He also explores the impact of his fame on his family and discusses his unique relationship with his daughter, actress Laura Dern.

Edgy and uncensored, this memoir takes readers on a wild ride, offering an insider's view of the last fifty years in Hollywood.

Reviews

"No other actor can claim to have shot John Wayne in the back—and if that were Bruce Dern's only claim to fame, it would be enough to ensure his status as a Hollywood legend."—CBS News

"[P]roves that Dern off-screen is every bit as unpredictable, compelling and explosively honest as he is onscreen."—Newsday

"Dern gives his take on Hollywood then and now, and [his memoir] like his recurring role on the HBO series Big Love, ought to jog memories of how deeply he could dive into a character."—New York Daily News

"[O]ffhand, entertaining . . . [A] fun addition for movie collections."—Booklist

"The veteran actor and late-career Oscar nominee...rambles through his life, dropping amusing, illuminating, and occasionally heartrending anecdotes along the way."—Philadelphia Inquirer
