Synopsis: Ten years ago, Rachel Abramowitz began interviewing the most powerful women in the movie-making business in an effort to discover how they had infiltrated this male-dominated world. From superstar actors to independent directors, women in all arenas opened up to her, and the result is extraordinary—together, these stories comprise the most comprehensive history to date of women in Hollywood. Here, in their own candid and provocative words, are Jodie Foster, Penny Marshall, Dawn Steel, Sherry Lansing, Barbra Streisand, Nora Ephron, Meryl Streep, Jane Campion, and many others—in short, one of the most talented casts ever assembled. Poignant, inspiring, scandalous, and hilarious, this is at once a landmark look at the evolution of women’s place in filmmaking and a glimpse inside one of the most powerful industries in American culture.

From the Back Cover: “[Abramowitz’s] descriptions of even the most well-known people are original and dead on. . . . The results are both fascinating and moving.” —Los Angeles Times

“A heck of a good read.” —Larry King, USA Today

“If you haven’t yet found the right escapist fiction, you might want to try this nonfiction page-turner by entertainment journalist Rachel Abramowitz. Is That a Gun in Your Pocket? . . . has all the elements of Jackie Collins or Jacqueline Susann—sex, money, love, betrayal, power—plus the sweep of a great generational coming-of-age novel. That the professional highs and personal lows of the women peopling this multiple biography are all real makes it even better than fiction.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Unsparing in her portrayal, Abramowitz offers a well-balanced . . . picture of narcissism and drive without the usual Hollywood spin.”—The New York Times Book Review

“This riveting book will inspire in readers a new respect for the unyielding women who have scaled the dizzying heights of Hollywood’s power structure. [An] entertaining, in-depth look at women’s struggles to succeed in Hollywood.” —Us Weekly
