Hopper: A Journey Into the American Dream (Large Print / Paperback)
The chopper-riding hippie outlaw in Easy Rider. Theprophetic madman in the jungle in Apocalypse Now. Thekid gone wrong in Rebel Without a Cause. Dennis Hopperhas been described as a rebel, an icon, an addict plagued bydemons, and one of the most important champions of the popartmovement. Friend to Warhol, muse to David Lynch, andmentor to Sean Penn, Dennis Hopper built a career that wasa half-century of rebellion waged at the edge of Americanpopular culture.
Tom Folsom's Hopper is a wild ride through Dennis's manylives. Featuring hundreds of interviews with Hopper's fellowactors, artists, musicians, and residents of Taos, New Mexico, as well as his ex-wives and many other people who knewhim, Hopper takes you on an extraordinary--and sometimestroubling--journey. Tom Folsom has crafted a biography asunconventional as Dennis Hopper himself.
