  • William Goldman

    “That was one of the freakiest experiences of my life. I was earning a living as a writer.” In this 2013 video for Open Road Media, screenwriter, playwright, and novelist William Goldman speaks about publishing his first novel, his experiences in the movie business, and his fame in dental offices.
