Review for Confessions of a Hollywood Agent; A Hollywood novel

Confessions of a Hollywood

Only an industry insider could write a story filled with such nuance about the glam and grim of Hollywood in the 1950’s and 60’s. William Gardner takes you on a (manicured and bejeweled) hand-held tour of Beverly Hills and its crusty and upper-crust inhabitants.

You’ll be privy to the name-dropping and bed-hopping among a large cast of loveable and loathsome characters, including a minister’s daughter who poses for Playboy but tithes ten percent of her earnings to the church and an internationally famous comedian who wastes his money on gambling and drugs.

And enjoy the odd, but enduring alliance between the story’s leading man and lady: Clint Nation, a Montana cowboy, and Dorothy Winters, a small-time thief, who will re-invent themselves and traverse the Hollywood Hills together as agent and movie star, occasional lovers and loyal friends.

There’s plenty of sinning in “Confessions”, but is there redemption? You’ll stay awake trying to find out. But don’t rush – or fast forward – to the closing credits. They come much too soon.
