Hal Ashby (1929--1988) was always an outsider, and as a director he brought an outsider's perspective to Hollywood cinema. After moving to California from a Mormon household in Utah, he created eccentric films that reflected the uncertain social climate of the 1970s. Whether it is his enduring cult classic Harold and Maude (1971) or the iconic Being There (1979), Ashby's artistry is unmistakable. His skill for blending intense drama with off-kilter comedy attracted A-list actors and elicited powerful performances from Jack Nicholson in The Last Detail (1973), Warren Beatty and Julie Christie in Shampoo (1975), and Jon Voight and Jane Fonda in Coming Home (1979). Yet the man behind these films is still something of a mystery. In Being Hal Ashby: Life of a Hollywood Rebel, author Nick Dawson for the first time tells the story of a man whose thoughtful and challenging body of work continues to influence modern filmmakers and whose life was as dramatic and unconventional as his films. Ashby began his career as an editor, and it did not take long for his talents to be recognized. He won an Academy Award in 1967 for editing In the Heat of the Night and leveraged his success as an editor to pursue his true passion: directing. Crafting seminal films that steered clear of mainstream conventions yet attracted both popular and critical praise, Ashby became one of the quintessential directors of the 1970s New Hollywood movement. No matter how much success Ashby achieved, he was never able to escape the ghosts of his troubled childhood. The divorce of his parents, his father's suicide, and his own marriage and divorce -- all before the age of nineteen -- led to a lifelong struggle with drugs for which he became infamous in Hollywood. And yet, contrary to mythology, it was not Ashby's drug abuse that destroyed his career but a fundamental mismatch between the director and the stifling climate of 1980s studio filmmaking. Although his name may not be recognized by many of today's filmgoers, Hal Ashby is certainly familiar to filmmakers. Despite his untimely death in 1988, his legacy of innovation and individuality continues to influence a generation of independent directors, including Wes Anderson, Sean Penn, and the Coen brothers, who place substance and style above the pursuit of box-office success. In this groundbreaking and exhaustively researched biography, Nick Dawson draws on firsthand interviews and personal papers from Ashby's estate to offer an intimate look at the tumultuous life of an artist unwilling to conform or compromise.

“Characters and dialogue as American as apple pie, a keep-’em-guessing plot, and laugh-aloud humor. A downright good read.” —Booklist When Oklahoma sheriff Milt Kovak wins a seven-day cruise for four to Puerto Rico, he takes his family—wife Jean and son Johnny Mac, plus Johnny Mac’s best friend, Early Rollins. It’s spring break and the ship is running over with children—and they really are running, everywhere. It’s complete chaos, but things are about to get even worse when Johnny Mac and Early are caught stealing. The boys confess that they were put up to it by an older boy named Joshua—who is soon found dead on the top deck. And with two full days of sailing ahead—plus word of trouble back home in Prophesy County—Milt and his wife must team up with the ship’s security officer to try to find the killer . . . “One of today’s finest mystery writers.” —Carolyn Hart

Milt Kovak, sheriff of Oklahoma’s Prophesy County, has been missing from the bookshelves for too long a time. Readers who have developed a friendship with this down-to-earth hero will be delighted to find the lawman back at the old stand and, as Kirkus Reviews has described him, “ever more simpatico.” Milt has married and has a toddler son. Then one day, Milt receives a terrified phone call from Laura Johnson, an old girlfriend who broke his heart. Laura’s teenage son, Trent, went on a religious retreat of some kind with his girlfriend Amanda and has not returned. Since the dubious “church” is in Milt’s county, Laura wants him to look into young Trent and Amanda’s whereabouts. What Milt finds is more than enough to alarm a mother. On the other side of a fence around the farmland deeded to the cult, Milt sees vultures circling over something in the grass. Hoping it’s a cow, Milt dares the barbed wire and a suspicious bull, to find instead the body of Amanda. Milt’s investigation is barred at every turn by “Brother Grigsby,” his wife, and their mostly female followers (an amazing number of whom are pregnant). Meanwhile, Laura is a shrieking hysteric, and Milt’s niece sneaks incognito into the compound to do some detecting of her own. Cooper’s stories always strike a fine balance of humor and solid suspense, and her characters are as real as the neighbors down the street, although their antics are more entertaining. Milt Kovak’s return is a real treat.
