Where to Get It:
HOLLYWOOD PLAYS FOR KEEPS reveals the raw, real underbelly of the acting world, a contrary world where the smaller the stakes the more vicious the competition. In this novel, punctuated with dark humor and provocative satire, has-beens and wannabes mingle with stars under the spotlights where sex is currency and murder lurks in the wings. With the studio system in Hollywood replaced by the small theatre training ground, the “play’s the thing” as actors claw their way from the seedy Valentine Theatre to the big screen. With opening night looming and careers at stake, the multiple rich characters stop at nothing to win their 15 minutes of fame.
