A comic novel about the people involved in making a TV sitcom. There is a lot of funny material in this easy to read book. I don't think there is much depth to it, but it has its funny moments. Set in late '80s LA sort of dates it, too. A book with a theme of celebrity culture had too many dead celebrities in it.
This is an excellent dark comedy, very dark in places. But hilarious. Highly recommend.
Hilarious! The TV star character, Geneva, is the most awful of creatures. Truly a vixen you love to hate. I won't spoil the ending, but trust me, you'll be glad to see how it ends.
Quick read. Funny and biting look at the inside world of making a television series (dealing with actors, management, directors, etc) from the writer's perspective.

A good light, shallow read to clear the palate in between all the suspense novels.
Fiction? I don't think so.

Hilarious? Oh, yes!
Light, fluffy, an easy read.
