Real people in fiction.

Blunt Memories of Celluloid Life

You know what I love about the above article? The Chaperone led Maslin back to Lulu in Hollywood and that’s the same experience I had with Beautiful Ruins (I immediately picked up Furious Love).

It’s like when I read war books, I head over to Wikipedia to read more about the events mentioned in passing. Fiction really does make you smarter.
