The long-awaited memoir from the Academy Award–winning director of such legendary films as The French Connection, The Exorcist, and To Live and Die in LA, The Friedkin Connection takes readers from the streets of Chicago to the suites of Hollywood and from the sixties to today, with autobiographical storytelling as fast-paced and intense as any of the auteur’s films.

William Friedkin, maverick of American cinema, offers a candid look at Hollywood, when traditional storytelling gave way to the rebellious and alternative; when filmmakers like him captured the paranoia and fear of a nation undergoing a cultural nervous breakdown.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A fascinating appraisal–and a reminder of how much of a maverick Mr. Friedkin has turned out to be, willingly or otherwise.”

    New York Times

  • “Entertaining…This memoir is at its most engrossing when describing the solid, unpretentious entertainments its author once made so well.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “Friedkin’s book does the unthinkable: It relates the behind-the-scenes stories of his triumphs but also sees Friedkin take responsibility (brutally so) for his wrong calls…He captures the gut-wrenching shifts of a filmmaker’s life.”

    Variety

  • “Friedkin’s memory for the process of filmmaking elevates this book above the usual score-settling Hollywood memoir; film buffs will be pleased with what he offers here.”
