"Brody's debut novel has an ambitious agenda. It's a coming-of-age novel, a mystery, a love story, and a stinging, knowing send-up of the movie biz." -- Booklist (May 2012) "As the sun came up today, I turned the last page of Phil Brody's The Holden Age of Hollywood . That's because I couldn't put it down. I can rarely make time for novels, but this one had me rifling through pages with constant anticipation." --Doug Jones, actor, Hellboy , Pan's Labyrinth , and author, Mime Very Own Book "A startling, beautiful, and unique page turner. And a poignant, focused perspective of life in the Hollywood trenches." --Taryn Southern, actor-singer-comedian "Brody's written a real fresh-feeling book on the whole Hollywood subject... His style reminds me a lot of Shane Black or David Mamet--masters at creating their own memorable voices with scant words." --Gregor Collins, author, The Accidental Caregiver " The Holden Age of Hollywood begins as a journey of personal discovery then mutates into a dark and obsessive pursuit of phantoms through the sulfurous netherworld of Hollywood. Fascinating." --John Knoerle, author of The American Spy Trilogy " The Holden Age of Hollywood is a great view of the reality of screenwriting. Phil Brody's dark humor and commentary could fast become required reading for all aspiring in Hollywood." --Jeffrey Gordon, founder, Writers Boot Camp " The Holden Age of Hollywood by Phil Brody delivers the premise and promise of its title. It is an original, rollicking, picaresque novel that would make J.D. Salinger proud." --Stan Corwin, former publisher/CEO of Pinnacle Books , author of Betty Page Confidential and Oxy-Morons I Have Known "Out of five stars, I'd probably give six... It's a great, fast-paced, witty, snarky read."
