Celluloid Strangers

Eric Wasserman BA ’97 offers a fictional account of four brothers who leave their native Northeast and converge in Los Angeles just after World War II. Each of these men (a lawyer, a mobster, a screenwriter, and a shopkeeper) makes a profound impact on the emerging landscape of postwar California.
