"A delicious debut novel. Perry weaves his small town hero Dexter Gaines through 1950s Hollywood, featuring guest appearances by Tallulah Bankhead, Rock Hudson, Judy Garland, and many others. Sexy, dishy, and filled with duplicity, sometimes Hollywood endings don't turn out exactly the way you'd expect. Pour yourself a champagne cocktail and enjoy."
"...a more complex story that both satisfies and subverts the reader's expectations...displays an excellent sense of plot and pacing...The historical settings sparkle..." - Foreword Reviews (to be published September 1, 2014)
"...subtly powerful...a Truman Capote-like piece...deeply affecting and tinged with pathos..." - Kirkus Reviews
