Heads up – New Yorker article appearing tomorrow
Just a quick heads-up, Larry Wright’s long-awaited article about Paul Haggis and the Church of Scientology is appearing in this week’s New Yorker, supposed to be out tomorrow. It’s long, but well worth the read.
Wright is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and screenwriter, as well as a staff writer for The New Yorker magazine.
He is the author of six books, and is best known for his 2006 book, The Looming Tower: Al Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. Wright won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction, and is frequently referenced by media pundits as an excellent source of background information on Al Qaeda and the September 11 attacks.
From one radical group of fanatics to another. He is planning on following up this article with a book on the Church.
And for another tantalizing preview, see this Gawker article: “The FBI is investigating Scientology for Human Trafficking.”
Added note: here is a PBS interview with Larry Wright.
