    Inside the inside of Hollywood!

    This was a fascinating read! The quick pace of the plot and the wit of the author combined for a page-turning few hours. I kept wondering who these characters were in 'real life' and who'll play them in the movie- hope there is one. Don't want to give the plot away, but if you are of a certain vintage, you'll recognize the types from way back. If you are younger, you'll find an insight into Hollywood during WWII.
