In "Pictures at a Revolution: Five Movies and the Birth of the New Hollywood", Mark Harris vividly depicts the epic human drama behind the making of the five movies nominated for Best Picture in 1967 – Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Graduate, In the Heat of the Night, Doctor Doolittle, and Bonnie and Clyde – and through them, tells the larger story of the cultural revolution that transformed Hollywood, and America, forever. The product of extraordinary and unprecedented access to the principals of all five films, combined with 20 years' worth of insight covering the film industry, Harris' Pictures at a Revolution is a windfall to pop culture historians and movie buffs everywhere.

For 15 years, Harris has worked as a writer and editor covering movies, television, and books for Entertainment Weekly, where he now writes the "Final Cut" back-page column. He has written about pop culture for several other publications as well. A graduate of Yale University, he lives in New York City with his husband, Tony Kushner.
