"Not only instructive, but intensely pleasurable."
—Wall Street Journal

"A gleefully readable, well-researched study of hubris in Hollywood."
—Publishers Weekly

"A smart, well-researched account of Hollywood's 'iconic flops.' "
—Peter Bart, Variety

"Writing with informative dispassion, Parish avoids the easy temptation to turn his book into bitchy gossip. He even has you cheering for those who narrowly elude impending doom."
—Washington Post Book World

In Fiasco, longtime industry insider and acclaimed Hollywood historian James Robert Parish goes behind the scenes to tell the intriguing stories of 15 of the most spectacular movie megaflops of the past 50 years, including Cleopatra, Popeye, The Cotton Club, Shanghai Surprise, Last Action Hero, and Waterworld.

He recounts, in every gory detail, how enormous hubris, unbridled ambition, artistic hauteur, and bad business sense on the parts of Tinsel Town wheeler-dealers and superstars such as Elizabeth Taylor, Clint Eastwood, Francis Ford Coppola, Madonna, and Warren Beatty conspired to engender some of the worst films ever.
