There's something both magical and lurid about this compendium of Hollywood actresses many of whom were lured by the dreams and wrecked by the cruel business of the Tinseltown star factory Tamblyn knows the industry better than most a second generation actor whose performances brought her leading roles in television and in feature films; she grew up in entertainment and sees it from an inside perspective that is haunting and illuminating The meat of this provocative and fascinating collection is a necrology of starlets and extras whose uest for the limelight brought heartbreak and tragedy Peg Entwistle the famed fateful lass who jumped from the Hollywood sign Jayne Mansfield Thelma Todd and Frances Farmer are but a few of the ghosts who get to speak from beyond the grave in this surreal re imagining of a kind of Spoon River Anthology One of the best poems in the collection comes from the frighteningly convincing voice of Sharon Tate's unborn child slain along with Tate by the bizarre murderous members of the Manson Family The entire staging of this book with artwork by such luminaries as Marilyn Manson David Lynch and Tamblyn's actor father Russ Riff in the Oscar winning West Side Story colored pages high end graphic design and a meta narrative informed by Tamblyn's own rocky relationship to success in Showbiz is pure Hollywood and it works in so many ways to capture the glam and the sham and the fascinating world of celebrity It's than that though It's rock solid poetry energetic and bursting with surprise at every turn I'll be the girl they say pink things to so weightless she arrives by ghost This is a sparkling ambitious in all the right ways unapologetic rip down the center of the silver screen Out steps our star Wow
