    Bruce Wagner

    Top Ten Books

    A deeply funny, deeply compassionate writer, Wagner’s trenchant exposes of Hollywood’s narcissism and hubris are simultaneously preposterous and profound. “Hollywood is a laboratory for need and vanity,” he has said. “The knives are always out, and I’m often holding them.” A finalist for the 2006 PEN/Faulkner Award, he has published ten novels, including Force Majeure, Still Holding, and The Chrysanthemum Palace, and written numerous screenplays including Maps to the Stars for David Cronenberg, who compares Wagner to James Joyce, saying, “Hollywood is his Dublin.” Below are Bruce Wagner’s favorite books, available to purchase as a set or individually.
