About the Book and Author
Shawn Levy is the author of nine books, including the New York Times bestsellers Rat Pack Confidential and Paul Newman: A Life. He will discuss his latest book, The Castle on Sunset. Perched above the Sunset Strip like a fairytale castle, the Chateau Marmont seems to come from another world entirely. Its singular appearance houses an equally singular history. It has welcomed the most iconic and iconoclastic personalities in film, music, and media. Much of what’s happened inside the Chateau’s walls has eluded the public eye . . . until now. With wit and insight, Levy recounts the wild revelries and scandalous liaisons, the creative breakthroughs and marital breakdowns, and the births and deaths that have occurred at the Chateau. Levy served as film critic of The Oregonian from 1997 to 2012 and KGW-TV from 2009 to 2016. He lives in Portland, Oregon, where he serves on the board of directors of Operation Pitch Invasion.
