Shawn Levy, once the primary film critic for The Oregonian, is also the author of several books, including biographies of Jerry Lewis, Paul Newman, the Sinatra Rat Pack, and a nice history of swinging London.
His latest, and in many ways his best, book is De Niro: A Life. I spoke with him at our studios in Portland.
