New York Times best-selling author Jane Smiley, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Critics Circle Award, produces her version of a Hollywood novel by using Boccaccio's Decameron as her model.
Oscar-winning writer-director Max, whose star is clearly beginning to dim, wakes up the morning after the 2003 Academy Awards lying next to his lover and feeling understandably groggy from the previous evening's festivities. But this is no time for Max to lounge about and chat his way idly through a hangover. There's a houseful of guests to worry about, and they all need attention.
Here is a book full of everything one would expect in a tale about the Tinseltown glitterati: sex, politics, war, love, and the stories people tell. Ten Days in the Hills is a Hollywood yarn as only Smiley could deliver. Download and start listening now!
