In Hollywood, Rex Reed said, "if you don't have happiness, you send out for it". And if ace reporter Donald Rawley had it right, you just might get the wrong order. Rawley (who died last year at forty) maps a city of the stars full of crazed body builders and suntan specialists; adolescents raised on credit cards and postponed affection; agents selling scripts that don't yet exist and aging starlets trading on their wasted reputations. The author of the The Night Bird Cantata knew this jaded place where milk outlasts marriages and where, as Marilyn Monroe once quipped, a kiss is valued a thousand times more than a soul. Very clearly, to have chronicled Hollywood this well, Rawley must have loved it a good deal.
