Bruce Wagner Continues His Hollywood Topography In 'maps To The Stars' - La Times

They were kind of howls.... But I wanted to explore the personal darkness that was mine. - Bruce Wagner [read] The son of a producer-turned-stockbroker, Wagner was born in Wisconsin and grew up in Beverly Hills. http://walterqjeh.blogs.experienceproject.com/3726373.html "Gilligan's Island" star Tina Louise was a guest at his bar mitzvah. He was friends "with the children of the famous, an impossible burden I always felt; [they are] buried alive, in essence." After dropping out of high school "I couldn't see where that was going" he worked in bookstores, including Campbell's in Westwood, and wrote scripts and stories for films, among them "Scenes From the Class Struggle in Beverly Hills" and "A Nightmare on Elm Street 3." He says by 30 he was "deeply unsatisfied" and turned more toward writing prose. He read Fitzgerald's Pat Hobby stories about an alcoholic screenwriter. "I wanted to go much further than Fitzgerald had gone," he says, "[His] stories were written for money at the end of his life.
