New York career woman Stacey Knight marries James Makepeace just as she learns he's been offered the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to run a major Hollywood studio. There's one catch: they must relocate to Los Angeles. Will Stacey be lost in translation, or will her hard-earned New Yawk survival skills prove yet again, as Ol' Blue Eyes so often said, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere?

The unwitting newlyweds land in a Technicolor high-stakes Social War, pursued by ruthless power brokers in the film demimonde. What's a girl to do when the promise of a glittering blockbuster future descends rapidly into film noir despair? At once seduced and repelled by the rigid caste system and predatory aspect of Hollywood life, Stacey navigates a sea of confusing social obstacles and extremely bad behavior. Empowered by 2,500-year-old military strategist Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Stacey takes control of the War Game and learns that they must adapt to survive and attack if they are to thrive.

About the Author:

Jodi Wing lives in Los Angeles with her husband. The Art of Social War is her first novel.

Review:

“Jodi Wing’s debut novel--The Art of Social War--is a satirical home run. A hilarious and dead-on exploration of the people who run Hollywood and those who try their best to love them. You won’t be able to put it down.” (Aaron Sorkin)

“a brainy, satiric chick lit novel that forgoes a typical looking-for-love plot in favor of a happy-couple-against-the-world story....entertaining” (Publishers Weekly)

“THE ART OF SOCIAL WAR is a smart, witty, yet cautionary tale... Jodi Wing’s newcomer-turned-insider narrative is a look at what happens when girl world intersects with the boys club in a town where winning is everything.” (Carol Wolper, author of THE CIGARETTE GIRL and MR. FAMOUS Carol Wolper, author of THE CIGARETTE GIRL and MR. FAMOUS)

“Saucy and full of biting wit, Jodi Wing’s THE ART OF SOCIAL WAR is about as much fun as you can have reading words off a printed page. Like a BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES crossed with MEAN GIRLS, it’s hilarious and deadly and fun to the bitter end!” (Mimi Rogers)

“The gloves are off in Jodi Wing’s hilariously witty account of Hollywood’s social battle ground. For anyone who has ever wondered what it really takes to make it here, THE ART OF SOCIAL WAR delivers a knockout punch!” (Thea Andrews, correspondent for Entertainment Tonight)

“A sassy, out-spoken woman in Hollywood?  What’s not to love?  I couldn’t put this book down.” (Kim Delaney, actress)
