Über diesen Titel


The author of action-packed screenplays, twenty-eight-year-old Elizabeth West searches for love as she struggles to cope with her cell-phone dependency, chronic attraction to dangerous men, and the Hollywood mating game, in a hilarious debut novel. Reprint.

From Kirkus Reviews:

An excruciatingly witty debut from screenwriter Wolper, set in Hollywood and full of glam-girl insights on love, sex, successand the search for Mr. Maybe. Elizabeth West is a down-home Hollywood girl, the sort who understands the etiquette of twin beds in Palm Springs and designer champagne at story meetings. A screenwriter, Elizabeth has made her name in the very macho sub-world of action-moron films, and much of her job is consumed by questions of finding the right firearms for the right scene. Although estrogen is usually a put-down in her patois, she is surprised to find herself gradually succumbing to the biological clock. Shes 28, after all, which puts her at the start of the zone: the prime years (2835) for finding a man and settling down. But, living in Hollywood, Elizabeth cant exactly start hanging out at church socials. She has to come up with a treatment, then polish off the edges as she goes along. Theres Jake: a director of some note, whos been Elizabeths mentor and (at 40) father-figure for some time. She admits to a crush on him, but there are problems, not least of which is his girlfriend Blaze. Davids a thirtysomething architect who looks great and can eat a girl into a coma, but his idea of commitment is a three-day weekend. Nigel is an acid-tongued Brit who owns a trendy restaurant in Malibu but is standoffish and spastic in that annoyingly English way. The only decent man in Elizabeths life seems to be her best friend Andrew, who runs an art gallery and warns Elizabeth when shes flying too close to the flames. Can she start something there? No way. This is Hollywood, after all, where decency marks you as a loser. Elizabeth will have to make the best of a bad hand. Or will she? Slick to the max: after about ten pages, Wolpers high-testosterone romp begins to sound like Cynthia Heimel on speed. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
