Lester seems to give the side-eye to some of the characters in her novel, and you find yourself wondering how closely some of these folks might be modelled on current A-list stars. Yet she tempers this analysis with warmth and fondness for those who view filmmaking as a craft. Her observations are shrewd but sympathetic, as when she describes attendees at a lunch for Academy Awards Nominees:
Tables set for ten stretched for seemingly as far as the eye could see, and the old guard of Hollywood was beginning to trickle in: a lot of white-haired men of surprisingly small stature, and a few—very few—older women in bugle-beaded suits who still believed in the power of Aqua-Net. (p. 76)
Ha ha! I love the side-eye portrait. Excellent!
A portrait from last year, before my doctor told me I had to lose 15 pounds! Yes, I blame the gain on blogging 😉 .
Ha! Blogging is SO BAD for a person’s waistline.
One of my FB friends in Switzerland saw the review of your book and immediately downloaded it. Look at you, and your book flying off the virtual shelves!
Wonderful! I wish I could sign her digital download, please extend my thanks to her 🙂 .
The book arrived in today’s mail 🙂 tomorrow we’re off to find the perfect Portland shot of It’s In His Kiss!
Yeah! We’re having a Portland day down here, grey and overcast! I hope it rains!
Egads, it is weird, isn’t it, when you see your favorite “big” stars in person and find out you could eat peanuts off the top of their heads!
The tall ones are few and far between, stars are usually middling height with big heads and features, they photograph well. Some ARE tall, like Keanu and Benedict…
