Ez Keneret and Wendell Spear are Hollywood veterans who have committed the only sin in the movie business: they've grown old. Having been cast aside, they face their obsolescence and the harsh reality that the art they appreciate (and profit from) is just a business powered by money and celebrity. While Spear is consoled and comforted by his granddaughter, Keneret centers his comeback film on Leet de Loor, a stunning but painfully wooden "actress" he discovers in Fiji.
"Stern is a distinguished writer . . . whose audience will appreciate this beautifully controlled, well-crafted work in which he gently pushes a parallel between aging men and a generation of capable younger women." --Publishers Weekly
