Silent-era sizzle from the author of The Aviator’s Wife
Hollywood, 1914: Frances Marion, a young writer desperate for a break, meets “America’s Sweetheart,” Mary Pickford, with her golden curls and lively spirit. Together, they will take the movie business by storm.
Mary Pickford becomes “Queen of the Movies”—the first actor to have her name on a movie marquee and to become an international star. Frances Marion becomes the first writer to win multiple Academy Awards. Their close friendship is pivotal to their success.
The author of The Swans of Fifth Avenue and The Aviator’s Wife writes about the power of women—and the imbalance of power—during Hollywood’s exhilarating early years; about the sacrifices and compromises women must make to succeed; and about the power of female friendship.
“Benjamin fully captures the giddy excitement of the blossoming movie business in the 1910s and 1920s…engrossing and rewarding.”—Library Journal
“An insightful tale of the relationship between writer and muse and a breathtaking view into Hollywood’s most glittering era.”—Pam Jenoff
