Read full description of the books:
In New York, five young people sacrifice everything for a life in the theater
Aaron, Walt, Rudy, Jenny, and Branch—a writer, a director, two actors, and one iron-willed producer. They grew up as creative, ambitious loners, and they all believe that their destiny lies in New York City. For these five, art is a calling to which they will sacrifice everything they have. They are determined to realize their potential even if it means destroying their friends—or themselves. More than a coming-of-age story or a portrait of Manhattan’s theater scene in the 1960s, Boys and Girls Together is a white-hot novel of the pains and joys of youthful creativity. A sensation when first published, William Goldman’s dramatic tale remains a masterwork. The sixties may be over, but the agonies of youth will never change. This ebook features a biography of William Goldman.

Read information about the authorGoldman grew up in a Jewish family in Highland Park, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, and obtained a BA degree at Oberlin College in 1952 and an MA degree at Columbia University in 1956.His brother was the late James Goldman, author and playwright.
William Goldman had published five novels and had three plays produced on Broadway before he began to write screenplays. Several of his novels he later used as the foundation for his screenplays. In the 1980s he wrote a series of memoirs looking at his professional life on Broadway and in Hollywood (in one of these he famously remarked that "Nobody knows anything"). He then returned to writing novels. He then adapted his novel The Princess Bride to the screen, which marked his re-entry into screenwriting.
Goldman has won two Academy Awards: an Academy Award for Writing Original Screenplay for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and an Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay for All the President's Men. He has also won two Edgar Awards, from the Mystery Writers of America, for Best Motion Picture Screenplay: for Harper in 1967, and for Magic (adapted from his own 1976 novel) in 1979.
