I received an early reviewer copy through Netgalley.I ve been reading a lot of nonfiction and fiction Hollywood through this period, so I was excited to read this book The story is a solid one as it follows three escapees from an abusive burlesque show Irene, Millie, and Henry as they venture to Hollywood to try and make their dreams come true Really, this novel is great for readers with only a vague understanding of silent film Hollywood, as it details the brutal process of trying to bust into movies, how movies were written and filmed, the rampant drug availability and abuse of the time, and , all through the eyes of three easy to relate characters The book also handles many sensitive issues quite well, such as sex, pregnancy, and homosexuality in Hollywood.My issues with the book came down to well, having already read too much on the period Indeed, the author s note in the back recommended several books I ve read in recent months As soon as I realized that one of the minor characters resembled the real life figure of William Desmond Taylor, that gave away a huge chunk of the plot for me That jolted me at points where I expected the book to closely follow actual history There are several characters blatantly based on real historical figures, and I kind of wish the real people had been able to represent themselves instead This was particularly true of the character based on Frances Marion who, I confess, I greatly admire I recommend this book to historical fiction readers who would like to read about early Hollywood And if you want another recent book set in the same period, look up Melanie Benjamin s The Girls in the Picture flag 1 likeLike see review View 1 comment Jan 29, 2019 Debi Hawkes rated it really liked it review of another edition City of

opening scene, the three jump off a moving train to escape their current employer the Burlesque company Chandler s Follies and its enforcement goons They make their way to Hollywood for a chance at a better life.This is my favorite kind of historical fiction the author embeds as many of the personages, events, and mechanics of the era into the story as possible vaudeville, burlesque, and films jobs within the studios scenarists, costumes, editing, etc prohibition and speakeasies taxi dancing and prostitution legal use of heroin housing issues No Jews or actors unintended pregnancies a budding studio Publicity department and the power of the Press to destroy fancy Hollywood parties and most interesting the feel of the small Hollywood enclave within which social s are relaxed, and many kinds of forbidden love are possible though only with great discretion hence the budding Publicity department.In summary a terrific story with a real feel for what life was like, embedding historical facts and figures without fictionalizing real people I hate that The characters are very likable, with fully fleshed out, historically accurate, backstories but not the rich interior life that I like Excellent pacing, decent writing, the story sticks with you for a long time As an aside, the author lists many sources in the afterward, including a reference to a 13 part documentary called Hollywood A Celebration of the American Silent Film All the episodes listed here are available on you tube Start at Episode 1 you to Gallery Books and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of

the novel feel even realistic Even though I m an Old Hollywood buff and have spent two years working with the Ava Gardner Museum as well as her trust, the silent film era is one I m not as familiar with, and if you had told me that the fictional characters mentioned in this novel were the real names of 1920s stars, I would have believed it because of how compelling Juliette Fay is in telling their stories.On top of all the realism, I especially admire Fay s commitment to including diverse stories LGBT , black, Native American, and sex work are all openly, directly addressed in the novel, and it s so refreshing to see Also the fact that the minorities who are represented here don t have stories that revolve completely around tragedy, which is something that seems to happen in so many pieces of media that focus on diverse narratives.Overall, this novel is lovely It s captivating, adequately written, believable, and above all, it s hopeful In a world where so much bad is seen every day, it s encouraging to be reminded that love whether from friends, lovers, or both exists all around us, even when it s difficult to see it flag Like see review Dec 07, 2018 KayKay rated it really

a solid read The only complain I have is that the historical aspects are a little weak in execution Sex scandals, prejudice, problems with drugs, alcoholism, homosexuality and etc were mentioned in the book but the severity of these issues that happened in the show business were undermined Not to mention working the way up in the entertaining business was extremely difficult The three protagonists, regardless of their perseverance in conquering whatever major obstacles in their ways, I felt they were indeed the few lucky ones They obtained their initial successes quickly and relatively effortlessly than what the reality would give to the actual people who didn t live in the fictional world When I was younger, I used to watch a cable channel that specializes in Hollywood stories Those documentaries gave better sense of how corrupted and dark the show business was than City of Flickering Light could offer To do the book justice, the author did include useful background notes at the end of the book to give a better picture of what Hollywood was like in the 1920s If readers are interested in the old Hollywood scandals and such, watching documentaries, reading memoirs or other non fiction books are probably the better choices.4 star for the solid entertaining plot and writing flag Like see review Jan 30, 2019 Mary Garrett rated it it was amazing review of another

year of THE TUMBLING TURNER SISTERS, and I was happy to see Gert appear in this book, like reconnecting with an old friend Speaking of which, no that would be a spoiler Inside glimpses of the film

compelling as we see behind the glitz into a world of drugs, abuse, sexuality and the realism that exists behind the magic Actually, not much different from the Hollywood we see today and while this
