A reviewer for The Washington Post once remarked that when it comes to choosing biographical subjects, I seemed to have a fondness for “slightly off-center American geniuses.” I liked that a lot, and I have to say that’s actually very true. And if I had to get even more specific, I’d say my particular proclivity — at least at the moment — would seem to be for Enigmatic American Pop Culture Icons. Once you’ve done Washington Irving and Jim Henson, then, I think the next one should be obvious.
With that in mind, then, I’m thrilled to finally Officially Announce The Subject of My Next Book:
C’mon, I don’t really have to tell you who that is, do I?
It’s George Lucas. And if I hit all my marks, you should have it in your hands in the Spring of 2016.
