A shocking account of how Harvey Weinstein rose to become one of the most iconic figures in the world of movies, how he used that position to feed his monstrous sexual appetites, and how it all came crashing down, from the author who has covered the Hollywood power game for the New Yorker for three decades.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The list of celebrated movies brought to the screen by Harvey Weinstein's Miramax Films is breathtaking: My Left Foot, Il Postino, The Cider House Rules, The Piano, The English Patient, Pulp Fiction, Shakespeare in Love, and No Country for Old Men among them. Even more breathtaking, though, was the appalling level of abuse--verbal, physical, sexual, and profoundly -emotional--that Weinstein brought for decades upon his staff, his investors, industry rivals, his own brother and partner, the media (including the author, by his account), and, most tragically, the more than 100 women who ultimately came forward with assault charges against him. Longtime New Yorker media reporter Auletta delivers a compelling, assiduously reported, full-formed biography of Weinstein, from his Queens youth all the way to his trial, conviction, and 2020 sentencing to 23 years in prison for criminal sexual assault and third-degree rape. Auletta is keenly sensitive here to the "long half-life of trauma" these many women experienced, yet also unsparingly graphic in detailing how Weinstein would entrap his victims, enabled by a host of individuals and forces that allowed such monstrous behavior to continue unchallenged for so long. A definitive, unblinking account of sexual abuse and violence in the American movie history."
