James Mangold about parents
My parents have a very, very rewarding life and do beautiful work, but growing up, one of my critiques of my parents’ world was that it was elitist, that it only speaks to a small sliver of the world. Doing something that could reach everybody else was very driving to me.

“We should be writing more great roles for women, period. – James Mangold

Mitchel Lichtenstein’s father Roy Lichtenstein designed the cover.
