What People are Saying About This

Peter Lefcourt

"Tinseltown Riff is a kick-a funny, well-told, tale about the world's most insane business."--(Peter Lefcourt, author of The Manhattan Beach Project)

John Fusco

"Shelly Frome's Tinseltown Riff takes us on a ride along the Hollywood fringe that is equal parts gritty intrigue and social comedy. In a subculture where get-rich-quick screenwriting workshops are a con and even the Santa Ana Winds can be an illusion, Frome's characters are heartbreakingly real. Under this pulp fiction lurks an unsettling yet compelling truth about the Dream Factory and its high-risk allure."--(John Fusco, Screenwriter of Young Guns, Thunderheart, Hidaglo, etc., etc., Author of Paradise Salvage)

Donald E. Westlake

"Tinseltown Riff is a twisty tale of quirky characters in a dangerous world of shadows and subterfuge, that company town called Los Angeles. Shelly Frome opens the door on a fascinating and all-too-real scene of hustle and hope. One lovely riff."--(Donald E. Westlake, "Edgar" winning author of The Dortmunder and Parker mysteries)
