Bryan Burrough has been writing books digging into big business, crime and American Scandal for over 30 years. After our chat about “Forget The Alamo” he was kind enough to stick around for 20 minutes or so and talk to us about his writing, movie adaptations, and some specifics about his books. 

He is the author of 7 books: 

“Barbarians at The Gate: The Fall of RJR Nabisco”

Vendetta: American Express and the Smearing of Edmond Safra 

Dragonfly: NASA and the Crisis Aboard Mir (1998)

Public Enemies: America's Greatest Crime Wave and the Birth of the FBI, 1933–34 (2004)

The Big Rich: The Rise and Fall of the Greatest Texas Oil Fortunes (2009)

Days of Rage: America's Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence (2015)

Forget the Alamo: The Rise and Fall of an American Myth (2021, with Chris Tomlinson and Jason Stanford)

Two of his books have been turned into movies. “Barbarians At The Gate” was produced by HBO in 1993. The film won both the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie and the Golden Globe for Best Television Movie while James Garner won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie.

“Public Enemies” was distributed by Universal Pictures in 2009. Directed by Michael Mann, and starring Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Stephen Dorff and Stephen Graham. It grossed $214 Million at the box office.
