“This metafictional episode matches a funny yarn-spinner with a rain of big letters that drop into sight…a simple story emerges—one that will draw the wayward audience members back and leave them eager for more. Young would-be-writers who are likewise stuck will come away with fresh resolve.” (Booklist)

Pub Day: The Glamorous Dead by Suzanne Gates

October 31st, 2017 | News | Comments Off on Pub Day: The Glamorous Dead by Suzanne Gates

“[An] impressive first novel, set in pre-WWII Hollywood….Gates skillfully evokes a Hollywood era when the studio chiefs wielded enormous power over the lives of everyone in their orbits and would go to any length to protect their stars and big-budget movies. Glamour takes a back seat to lust, lies, and greed in this well-wrought mystery.”—Publishers Weekly
