Barry Levinson is an Oscar-winning film director and screenwriter. But it also turns out he’s a pretty good novelist.
The man famous for such films as Diner, Rain Man, and Good Morning, Vietnam wrote a novel in 2003 called Sixty-Six.
Like his Baltimore-based movies, Sixty-Six was the story of young men dealing with momentous changes in their lives and in the society around them.
When his book was published, Levinson went on an author tour, and that’s when I had the chance to meet him.
So here now, from 2003, Barry Levinson.
Barry Levinson will be 80 years old next month. His most recent project: he was co-executive producer of last year’s Hulu mini-series “Dopesick.”
