The newest novel from Walter, whose previous book The Financial Lives of Poets, was a riot is a little more subdued, at times, but still a funny, even romantic look at the past and current life of how movies are made in Hollywood. It is not the story of one or even two characters but nearly ten, that Walters does a great job of keeping separate through alternating chapters and alternating settings (Rome, Hollywood, London, Idaho). Just when you think, "Oh no, not another new character", Walter offers up a spin you don't see coming and you're sucked right back in to the new thread. I ate this book up- and think you will, too.
