Compiled from hundreds of interviews with survivors of the Silent Screen era, this is the most intimate and most realistic novel ever written about sex, murder, blackmail, and degradation in early Hollywood.
It's based on the loose-lipped gossip that was articulated within the drunken dinner parties of 1920s-era Hollywood. Many of the stories were committed to memory by some of the listeners, and recited, years later, to celebrity interviewer Darwin Porter.
Are all of the anecdotes in this info-novel true? Only the participants in those long-ago power struggles will ever really know. But if you believe, like Truman Capote, that "the artful presentation of gossip will become the literature of the 21st century," then this is a highly irreverent and juicy read."
