Un extracto:

«For almost two decades, she was one of the most powerful agents and most commanding hostesses in Hollywood. She rose fast in a business that was then dominated by men. She outmanned many of them: she was the toughest negotiator, the bluntest adversary, the nerviest deal maker. In her years at Creative Management Associates, which then became International Creative Management, from 1967 to 1986, she made a lot of movies happen. She represented, among others, Candice Bergen, Faye Dunaway, Brian De Palma, and Anthony Perkins. Then she lost one big client, and then another, and her way of doing business—all personality, no strategy—started to seem an anachronism. She no longer fits in. She hasn’t had more than a few people over for dinner since 1986. She doesn’t want to go to screenings anymore; she doesn’t want to go to big parties. As she tells it, Hollywood is a club that she loved to belong to, yet you can tell she never felt she really belonged. For a while, people appreciated her usefulness, which is not the same as belonging, although for a stretch it can look the same. She was tactless and contemptuous, and made enemies needlessly, either because she knew in her heart that someday she would no longer belong and so indulged a preëmptive bitterness or because she believed she’d belong forever and so could afford to do anything.»
