"What's the real version of our lives? How do movies--and who we love or are unable to love--shape us? Wildly original, in language that sparks and glints off the page, Peloponnesia is funny, moving and just plain brilliant."
- Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You
"Who in town is this story based on? Peloponnesia is a darkly funny book that is also very true to life."
- David Brown, producer of The Sting, Jaws, Cocoon
"In Peloponnesia, Tom nails the essence of the garden of delights that is the movie business--an intoxicating, beguiling, exhausting, inescapable maze." -- Stanley Weiser, screenwriter of Wall Street, W
"Turning his insider's eye on the movie business, Tom Benedek gives us, in Peloponnesia, a dark comedy that's also a profound and affecting meditation on storytelling--the stories we tell ourselves and the stories that shape our lives. Crackling with insight and inventiveness." -- Jenefer Shute, author of Life-Size, User I.D.
