"Silver’s writing is clear and light. She also has a great handle on details, from the preferred brands of celebrities to the formulaic way that Hollywood people talk to one another, be it glad-handing industry talk or gossip. ... For lovers of Hollywood, this novel offers an immersive look at the past and present of the movie business." --Kirkus
