The Operator PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Operator free pdf With his Midas touch and ferocious will, David Geffen has not only built an empire, he has transformed the way Hollywood does business. Yet the story of his meteoric rise had never been fully told, until journalist Tom King was granted unique access to nearly three hundred headliners who know Geffen best, and who speak to epic moments in American pop culture. The result is not only a biography that traces a titan from his tumultuous Brooklyn childhood- The Operator is also the riveting inside story of Hollywood's transformation from the early 1970s through the 1990s. Drawing on the vivid recollections of mega-celebrities such as Tom Cruise (Geffen produced Risky Business), Yoko Ono, Donna Summer, Warren Beatty, Courtney Love, Paul Simon, and even Cher (whom Geffen nearly married), The Operator transports readers to a world that is as ruthless as it is dazzling. From building phenomenally successful record labels to backing Broadway shows and joining the DreamWorks trinity, Geffen's professional life reflects the intensity of his personal life, which has been marked by a struggle with his homosexuality, an emotionally troubled family, and a complex personality that swings from raging bully to lavishly generous friend. An intimate look at the making of modern-day glitterati, The Operator at last puts the spotlight on this star behind the stars.
