A good story, sometimes too protracted and sometimes really absorbing. The book is very interesting, recommended! ( )

One of Irwin Shaw’s most unforgettable heroes battles to resurrect his declining career against a tough cast of women, whiskey, and old memories Jesse Crain was made for Cannes. A middle-aged filmmaker who dazzled audiences during Hollywood’s Golden Age, Crain is talented, worldly, ambitious, and he knows how to play the game. As the Riviera sparkles in the spring of 1970, Crain juggles industry players while charming a persistent young journalist and fending off groupies. Beneath his polished exterior, though, Crain’s life is coming apart at the seams. His last two films flopped, and for several years he’s been adrift.
