I've been curious about this author, so when the book ended up on my apartment building's "share table" I picked it up. My honest reaction was that every character was a total stereotype: feisty, wryly humorous dwarf, ditzy blonde roommate, gay best friend, vicious agent, self-loathing closeted gay young actor, gorgeous and nice love interest. Reading the reviews here, though, and learning that Cadence Roth, the main character, was based on a close friend of Maupin's, an actress whose best-known role was inside the E.T. suit, I feel like there's more to it, perhaps. A light-as-air Hollywood satire, a very quick read, and more touching with retrospective knowledge.
