Publisher's Summary

Out of touch with people for years, Terrance Malick still inspires a dome of silence that is Mafia-loyal, as if investigating his whereabouts might shatter some fragile, cherished objet d'art. Adams, Sheen, Medavoy and Brackman are among the only Malick associates who will consent to discuss him. More common is the reaction of producer Bert Schneider: "Malick's a great man and a great director. I'm sorry he isn't making films. That's all I have to say."
After a brief yet exalted career that resulted in the acclaimed films Badlands and Days of Heaven, director Terrence Malick shunned the public eye and, seemingly, his talents. In The Absence of Malick, David Handelman renders the scope and mystery of Malick's disappearance and, against all odds, finds him on the other end of a phone call.
The Absence of Malick was originally published in California Magazine, November, 1985.

4 out of 5 stars

Interesting tidbit of Hollywood History...

I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Educational and provides some backstories on Hollywood that I had never heard.

I gave the book a 4 on Overall and Story because at one or two points in the book, it backtracks over itself and basically does the same material again. Not for great amounts of time, but for a book this short, it is kind of hard to rate it a 5 out of 5 when you suddenly find yourself going over material, pretty much word for word, that you had heard earlier.

For Hollywood fans desperate for a book, this is worth buying, but at its low cost, I would not use a credit.
