MONTCLAIR, NJ — Watchung Booksellers is pleased to host Mark Rozzo, author of “Everybody Thought We Were Crazy: Dennis Hopper, Brook Hayward, and 1960s Los Angeles.” He’ll be in store to talk with former Doubleday Executive Editor Gerald Howard on Thursday, May 12, at 7:00 p.m.

“Everybody Thought We Were Crazy” is the the stylish, wild story of the marriage of Dennis Hopper and Brooke Hayward, and the glamorous home that become the de facto living room to the era’s biggest names: from Roy Lichtenstein to Andy Warhol, Jane Fonda to Jasper Johns, Joan Didion to Tina Turner, Hells Angels to Black Panthers. In this house, everything that defined the 1960s went down: the fun, the decadence, the radical politics, and, ultimately, the danger and instability that blew their union apart.

Mark Rozzo is a contributing editor at Vanity Fair and teaches nonfiction writing at Columbia University.
