Everything about this book is brilliant until you get to the end It's totally inexplicable feels like he just got really tired and just decided to stop writing and go to bed Which is too bad because the first four fifths of the book is incredible

Abandoned by his wife Gordon needs something love Love in the shape of Lu Anne Followi. Geez dude This thing was I mean don't let the pink cover trick you Some serious intensity here I'm fully in love with this guy Stone COL concerns a Hollywood production in Mexico and basically revolves around the screenwriter a serious coke head coming together with the star who's 'troubled' to put it mildly and what happens when they finally meet up on the set The scenes featuring the star's schizophrenic visions are some of the craziest things I've ever read—some serious horror movie shit in an otherwise realist novel Anyway there's humor here and but there's mostly just dark dark shit some real underbelly of Hollywoodpersonal humanity stuff But not in a depraved or exposé or smarmy way The dialogue is crisp as hell all of the characters there are a few are realized and particularized the book is very very sad in a general not having anything to do with plot tonal way but also really entertaining Yes read it Yes This guy is GREAT

Children of LightNg her to Mexico where she is filming a movie he's scripted it doesn't matter to Gordo. whew forget lovecraft if you wanna read something that makes you feel like you're on the brink of losing it check out the leelu anne's pov sections of this weaker than hall of mirrors weaker than dog soldiers undecided how it ranks vis a vis flag for sunrise the major issue imo is that the Bad Thing that's relentlessly foreshadowed throughout the 1st half is exactly the Bad Thing you think it's gonna be and while it's still p interestingtragic to see how everyone fails in their own way to avert it the obviousness deadens the impact also i doubt this is stone's fault but the jacket copy contains some nonsense about how maybe gordon and lee's desperate love might enable them to save each other which read a couple pages of this and tell me that's not absolutely risible anyhow if you grooved on hall of mirrors as i can't imagine you wouldn't you won't regret this one either
