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.

    " All I could think of as I was reading this was "people don't talk this way. Why are all the characters talking this way?" Maybe I just didn't get it, but I thought this was a totally unlikely, unbelievable book, with very few appealing characters. "

    " I agree with most of the reviews that this was a difficult read; slow, and well, boring. I am a big Smiley fan, which was what compelled me to finish it. "

    " This was my first Jane Smiley book and I would not read another but for the reviews of others who seem to think that she is a good author save for this book. There were spots where I became interested in the characters, but, for the most part, I had to force myself to finish this book. Not a lot of substance here. "

    " a total disappointment. It was filled with sleazy sex scenes and the characters were right out of a Jackie Collins novel. So sad, that a fine author went in this direction. "
