Format: Kindle Edition
Ray Connolly's "Shadows On A Wall" is the best-ever novel about making movies. This is a pitch-perfect, rollicking expose' of the glories and idiocies of a film project gone hopelessly awry; a can't-put-it-down thriller; and a devilishly amusing epic of sex, intrigue, murder...and even true love.

It begins simply enough: a struggling young British playwright and his American aspiring-actress girlfriend experience a well-deserved, but somewhat surprising success when their play premieres at the Edinburgh Festival to excellent reviews. This leads to an offer they can't turn down - an option to adapt the play for a feature film - and a torturous path to both catastrophe and triumph.

The love of movies - and the madness that infects those of us with that lifelong disease is nowhere better examined than in this sprawling and darkly affectionate story of the egos and excesses, the courage and cowardice of those behind- and in front-of the camera.

The best novel about making movies. Shadows On A Wall tells a great story that's funny, thrilling, moving and even though it may well shatter any illusions you still had about film-making, it won't kill your love of movies. Filled with engaging characters from the playwright who has been sucked into the Hollywood big time to the desperate producer trying to hang on to his unfaithful wife to the wealthy undertaker who fancies dabbling in the silver screen, Shadows On A Wall itself would make a great movie.

Easily one of the best novels I've read in the last decade. It's full of intrigue just like my biography of Princesss Diana Diana's Nightmare - The Family. Shadows on a Wall made my holiday . Would love to see his book made into a movie - with Danny de Vito as Harvey. If ever there was a page turner this is it. Well done. More please Mr Connolly.

I will admit that I am not a voracious reader. But I found this novel impossible to put down!

Anybody who has ever worked in cinema, television or theater will recognize so many "if anything can go wrong - it will" situations in the story. I have seen several facets of the story invoked (intentionally or not) in films like Wag the Dog, Living in Oblivion and even Tropic Thunder.

One of my favorite reads ever!
