9780099489832: My Lucky Star

The luckless writing team of Philip Cavanaugh and Claire Simmons is lured to Hollywood by shifty pal Gilbert's offer of a lucrative screenwriting gig. The job proves even more ill-gotten than they'd feared, but then comes the news that the project will be graced by Hollywood royalty - imperious screen legend Diana Malenfant, her son the fantastically sexy (and secretly gay) megastar Stephen Donato, plus Stephen's hastily acquired wife, the lovely, if clueless, Gina. But with such Star Power on board how long before three newbie scribes are replaced by more seasoned hands?

Unhappily - or perhaps, inevitably - the road to glory proves liberally strewn with land mines. Throw in teh macinations of MOira Finch (an old adversary of Gilbert's) and our hetroes soon find themselves center stage in a rapidly escalating fiasco involving call boys, plagiarism, blackmail, a vengeful DA, bloodthirsty scoop hounds and teh single most ill-judged sex act a married megastar has ever committed...

Review:

"Keenan's command of the written word is as deft as the words he puts in other peoples mouths on TV... Ridiculously, almost criminally, funny... In Keenan's world, everyone is either morally corrupt, incredibly stupid or, in Moira's case, pure evil. And we should thank him for it. Because My Lucky Star may just be the funniest novel of the year... Unmissable." ( Irish Independent)

"This hilarious tale of naïve screenwriter Philip, lured to La-La Land by his amoral pal Gilbert. The manic twists and jibes at modern celebrity culture are a delight." ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Comedy of a high order... This is sophisticated, deliciously camp entertainment" ( The Times)

"'Urbane wit and high comedy...run like quicksilver through the veins of My Lucky Star... A delightful, feel good, beautifully crafted romp... Laugh out loud funny... It is ingenious, unpredictable and wholly enjoyable'" ( Independent on Sunday)

"'Brilliant set pieces-Intrigue has never been so intriguing - Keenan writes like an uncloseted Coward -Not high-minded satire but - something much rarer - pure-hearted camp.' Voice Literary Supplement"

From the Publisher:

A hilarious Hollywood farce from the multiple Emmy-winning scriptwriter of Frasier and Producer of Desperate Housewives.
