Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a lovely novel that works both as a work of accessible literary fiction, and as the novelization of a classic Hollywood movie! The story is real, yet it also could be the plot of a bio-pic. Laura Lamont, our heroine, could be any one of a number of studio-era screen queens--I never worked out who influenced the character, but I definitely saw characters influenced by Irving Thalberg, Lucille Ball, Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney, Jack Warner/Louis Mayer. If you love old movies, you will adore this book!
