Brian Kellow discusses and signs Can I Go Now: The Life of Sue Mengers, Hollywood's First Superagent

Book Soup

8818 Sunset Blvd, Austin, CA 90069

7:00pm

A lively and colorful biography of Hollywood’s first superagent one of the most outrageous showbiz characters of the 1960s and 1970s whose clients included Barbra Streisand, Ryan O Neal, Faye Dunaway, Michael Caine, and Candice Bergen.  Before Sue Mengers hit the scene in the mid-1960s, talent agents remained quietly in the background. But staying in the background was not possible for Mengers. Irrepressible and loaded with chutzpah, she became a driving force of Creative Management Associates (which later became ICM) handling the era’s preeminent stars.  A true original with a gift for making the biggest stars in Hollywood listen to hard truths about their careers and personal lives, Mengers became a force to be reckoned with. Her salesmanship never stopped. In 1979, she was on a plane that was commandeered by a hijacker, who wanted Charlton Heston to deliver a message on television. Mengers was incensed, wondering why the hijacker wanted Heston, when she could get him Barbra Streisand.
Acclaimed biographer Brian Kellow spins an irresistible tale, exhaustively researched and filled with anecdotes about and interviews more than two hundred show-business luminaries. A riveting biography of a powerful woman that charts show business as it evolved from New York City in the 1950s through Hollywood in the early 1980s, Can I Go Now? will mesmerize anyone who loves cinema s most fruitful period
