9780578118826: Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown

Here is a unique perspective of what it is like to live and work where stars are born and movies are. In over five hundred quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks, actors, directors, writers, and others involved in the business talk about themselves, their lives, their fame, their careers, each other, and the town itself. Their observations, on one hand, are caustic, critical, and cynical, but they are also eye opening, amusing, inspiring, and in some cases, even endearing. Be prepared to be surprised. To name a few of the famous names quoted in the collection, there is Ben Affleck, Woody Allen, Alan Arkin, David Arquette, Alec Baldwin, Ellen Barkin, Kathy Bates, Jack Black, Nicholas Cage, James Cagney, Jim Carrey, Jackie Chan, Charlie Chaplin, George Clooney, Kevin Costner, Daniel Craig, Russell Crowe... And those are only some of the A,B,Cs. Hollywood or Bust was a winner at the 2013 Beach Book Festival.

About the Author:

Susan Marg is the author of Las Vegas Weddings: A Brief History, Celebrity Gossip, Everything Elvis, and the Complete Chapel Guide, published by HarperCollins. Since she has moved her field of focus from the City of Lights to the City of Angels with the publication of Hollywood or Bust, her fascination with popular culture has only intensified. Susan knows how to ask questions, spot trends, and anticipate fads, skills honed during her years spent in advertising when knowing what was hot and who was in came with the territory. She is from Cleveland, Ohio, and she has the easy-going, friendly disposition of a Midwesterner that even fifteen years living on the East Coast could not quell. Susan now lives in San Diego with her husband.

Review:

"Happiness for movie fans like me is reading "Hollywood or Bust" by Susan Marg! I love all the quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks from some of my favorite actors and actresses that are included in this fascinating anthology. So, of course, I found Marg's revealing, star-studded book impossible to put down once I started it." - Betty Jo Tucker, Movie Addict Headquarters on Blog Talk Radio:  blogtalkradio.com/movieaddictheadquarters
