Right around when LA Weekly's Amy Nicholson was releasing her biography of Tom Cruise, we discussed how she might go about promoting it. Typically, an author will make appearances on podcasts or do Q&A's with various publications. I pitched the idea of a video essay instead, and Amy happily obliged.
Unfortunately, I got mired down in random things like a sinus surgery and completion of The Primary Instinct. But I was able to scrape together some time this month to finally put this together and give it the attention it deserves.
I don't always agree with Nicholson, but I always find her viewpoints interesting and thought-provoking. I hope you will too.
