Pulitzer Prize-Winning Novelist Skewers Hollywood
Wednesday, March 7, 2007
Tom Fudge: You could say that Jane Smiley is a member of a very elite literary club. Her novel A Thousand Acres won the Pulitzer Prize. She's written 12 novels in all. And she's written a highly acclaimed book of literary criticism called Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Novel .
Now she has a new book out. This work of fiction is in the Hollywood Hills, and it features a motley crew of movie industry types and hangers on. The novel is called Ten Days in the Hills .
Jane Smiley will be signing copies of Ten Days in the Hills Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Warwick’s bookstore in La Jolla.
- Jane Smiley, author of 12 works of fiction, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Thousand Acres and her latest book, Ten Days in the Hills
