City of Whores
Mark B. Perry
The debut novel from Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning writer Mark B. Perry (Revenge, Law & Order, The Wonder Years, Party of Five)
"...subtly powerful...a Truman-Capote like piece...deeply affecting and tinged with pathos..." - Kirkus Reviews
"…mesmerizing…an eloquent work of art…" - Meghan Hyden, LuxuryReading.com
New Year's Eve, 1951. Hollywood, California. As Tinseltown rings in the twilight of its Golden Age, a gorgeous young man arrives from Texas hell-bent on exploiting his brooding good-looks and smoldering sex appeal in exchange for his rightful place among the stars of the silver screen--only to become dangerously entangled in the lives of one of the most powerful couples in show business. As his dream of stardom devolves into a lurid, erotic nightmare, he must choose between fortune and fame or sanity and survival in this City of Whores.
"…a more complex story that both satisfies and subverts the reader's expectations...displays an excellent sense of plot and pacing…the historical settings sparkle…" - Foreword Reviews
"A delicious debut novel. Perry weaves his small town hero Dexter Gaines through 1950s Hollywood, featuring guest appearances by Tallulah Bankhead, Rock Hudson, Judy Garland, and many others. Sexy, dishy, and filled with duplicity, sometimes Hollywood endings don't turn out exactly the way you'd expect. Pour yourself a champagne cocktail and enjoy." - Ann Hamilton, author of Expecting
"…a page-turner with a big heart. It's irresistible." - Bill Barol, author of Thanks For Killing Me
