[nice solid book, minimal shelfwear, very faint dampstain at top left-hand corner of front cover, small bookseller's label at bottom of rear pastedown (Brown Book Shop, Houston TX); jacket has matching dampstain (internal) at upper left of front panel, moderate wrinkling along top edge (front and rear panels), triangular chip at top of spine (taking away part of first T in book's title)]. Not quite a novel -- really six individual stories, "interlinking" per the dust jacket (but not terribly so) -- and not entirely about Hollywood per se, although it's certainly a highspot in the Hollywood fiction genre. These are tales, you might say, of people who are all within the gravitational pull of the film industry -- some closer to its center (that is, actually engaged in making movies), others farther out but with lives still inextricably bound to the dream factory, and not always in the most benign way.
