About the Author

Richard Schickel, best known as a film critic for Time magazine, has written many books about the movies. Intimate Strangers is his highly regarded interpretation of contemporary American culture.

Reviews

Film critic and author Schickel examines the ``celebrity system'' that pervades popular culture and judges that it has, among other things, confused the realms of public and private life, encouraged fantasizing at the expense of reason, and trivialized and simplified complex issues. ``Provocative, disturbing and often brilliant,'' PW commented. (June)

A fascinating, disturbing book. * Library Journal * Cogent...Schickel offers white-hot jeremiad. -- Melvin Maddocks * Time * Intimate Strangers is, simply, in my estimation, the single most important book about celebrity. -- Neal Gabler
