Publisher's Summary

On the morning after the 2003 Academy Awards, Max, an Oscar-winning writer/director whose fame has waned, and his lover, Elena, are in bed, still groggy from last night's red-carpet festivities. They are talking about movies, talking about love, talking about the just-begun war in Iraq. But their house is full of guests demanding attention.

Gathered downstairs are ex-wives, daughters, agents, lovers, and a coterie of others. Over the next 10 days they share their stories of Hollywood past and present, their fears provoked by the Iraq war; they watch films in Max's luxury screening room; they gossip by the swimming pool and tussle in the many bedrooms as the tension mounts and sparks fly.

    "Gave up..."

    Oh how I wish I had read the reviews on Amazon first. I had loved other Jane Smiley books but this one was just so boring. I couldn't get past the interminable and endless pointless conversations. If you find out (too late in my case!) that you prefer books with action rather than words then this book isn't for you.
