Synopsis: With a geography as diverse as the streets of Beverly Hills and the charnel grounds of India, a Mexican beach resort and the Russian Tea Room in New York City, this is a spare, eloquent, and deeply informed novel about the world of the movies. It is a profound and utterly convincing portrait of a man whose career and life has been devoted to the manipulation of images--on the screen and at the conference table, with actors and technicians--and the story of how, at the age of 71, he tries to divest himself of illusions and make peace with his demons and his past.
