Sam Wasson discusses FOSSE

SEE EVENT DETAILS
If you love Beyonce’s dance moves in “Single Ladies,” the musical Chicago, Michael Jackson's white gloves circa Billie Jean, jazz hands, and especially bowler hats, you’ve been waiting for this book. It’s the biography that reveals the insecure, insanely brilliant man with staggering sex appeal who changed the lives of everyone he touched. In FOSSE, New York Times award-winning writer Sam Wasson traces not only his professional life, but also his intense relationships, including exclusive interviews with Ann Reinking, Fosse’s beloved mistress, among so many others.

"Required reading" -- New York Times. "Definitive" -- Hollywood Reporter

Wasson tells Fosse’s story not from the beginning of his life, but from his funeral, so that the stage is magnificently set when we learn about Fosse’s unusual childhood, and even more unusual—and often dangerous—young adult life. With uncanny depth and perception, Wasson doesn’t shy from his portrait of a man who commanded the attention of women and loyal friends, who risked life and health in his visions and creations. It's the only truly full biography of Fosse, written with unprecedented access to the full Fosse archive at the Library of Congress.

“Sam Wasson is a fabulous social historian because he finds meaning in situations and stories that would otherwise be forgotten if he didn’t sleuth them out, lovingly.” -- Hilton Als, New Yorker

Sam Wasson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Fifth Avenue, 5 A.M.: Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's, and the Dawn of the Modern Woman and two works of film criticism. He is a visiting professor of film at Wesleyan University.
