One of the marks of great writing is the ability to draw me into a subject that otherwise would not interest me (in this case, Hollywood and its inhabitants).  I enjoyed each of the characters and points of view equally, and the expertly entwined plot lines provided just the right amount of suspense and resolution. The landscape was so well drawn, I was left dreaming about running away to Italy.  I look forward to reading more of this author's books.
