More of a novella than a book, this one packs a lot of punch in a short time. Set in the future where Hollywood has reached its inevitable outcome, a film editor meets a dame who wants nothing more than to dance on the big screen. Except there aren't musicals anymore, there aren't dancers anymore, and new movies aren't even made anymore -- they're all photoshopped remakes. He tries to snap her out of her foolish dreams, but she holds on to her pluck and does what she can to make them come true.

Fun book and worth the time.

Quotes Amy Liked

Connie Willis
“That's what the movies do. They don't entertain us, they don't send the message: 'We care.' They give us lines to say, they assign us parts: John Wayne, Theda Bara, Shirley Temple, take your pick.”
