Special Book Signing: The Exorcist!

William Friedkin, director of “The Exorcist” and “The French Connection,” among others, will be touring California signing copies of his memoir, The Friedkin Connection.

The book has been compared to Elia Kazan’s Elia Kazan: A Life, particularly in that it does go through Friedkin’s oeuvre, reassessing strengths and weaknesses.  It also shares secrets, details from Friedkin’s personal life as well as insider bits of trivia. Ever wanted to know how Linda Blair managed to projectile vomit on cue in “The Exorcist”? Well, now you can.

"The Friedkin Connection"

About The Friedkin Connection:


“Movie fans will celebrate the natural storyteller at work in the pages of The Friedkin

Connection, a welcome reminder that it takes so much more than talent to make a movie – and to keep making them.”

(Associated Press)

The long-awaited memoir from the Academy Award–winning director of such legendary films as The French ConnectionThe Exorcist, and To Live and Die in LAThe Friedkin Connection takes readers from the streets of Chicago to the suites of Hollywood and from the sixties to today, with autobiographical storytelling as fast-paced and intense as any of the auteur’s films.Friedkin, maverick of American cinema, offers a candid look at Hollywood, when traditional storytelling gave way to the rebellious and alternative; when filmmakers like him captured the paranoia and fear of a nation undergoing a cultural nervous breakdown.
