LoveReading Says

A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

One of the most original books of the year so far, this tale of the romance of silent film movie-making and early Hollywood soons veers into the most unpredictable of directions and takes the reader to new worlds and horizons that are truly staggering in their speculative sense of wonder. Involving alternate history, 1920s space exploration with a strong touch of the naivety of the pulp writing era, gossip columns a la Hedda Hopper, actual film scripts, the adventures we are presented with are like an ever-shifting kaleidoscope that peers into another dimension. Severin, the daughter of a famous film director of gothic romances in a world which is not quite like ours rebels against her environment and becomes a documentarian in space when she stumbles against a tale straight from the yellowing pages of early SF cliches and reality literally takes a tumble. Bizarre, exhilarating and a must read for anyone with a thirst for the uncommon.
