The Wright Stuff on Scientology
You may have heard for quite awhile that Lawrence Wright is writing a book about Scientology--who can forget his New Yorker profile of director Paul Haggis's exit from same--and that all hell may break loose, hopefully only confined to the legal arena. Chip McGrath of the NYT interviews him for a piece in tomorrow's piece, finding him practicing....with his country-rock band in Austin. Yes, it's a little more fun than when I chatted with him last year about his one-man play based on his great book The Looming Towers.
is author of a dozen books (click on covers at right), including the new "THE TUNNELS: Escapes Under the Berlin Wall and the Historic Films the JFK White House Tried to Kill." He was the longtime editor of Editor & Publisher. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Twitter: @GregMitch
