A Delicious Old Hollywood Read


I enjoyed this quick read, with its delicious depiction of Old Hollywood seen through the eyes of a fictional one-time movie star ready to share her life story. But I was also struck by the serious questions underlying the story: When is it time to tell the truth? To whom do you tell it? And to what extent do the best of intentions justify a lie? To me, the book was like a sophisticated dessert: frothy and easy going down, but with some complex, unexpected and very welcome undertones that are worth pondering after you take your last swallow.
