Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

It's venal, commercial, and self-congratulatory--that's not news. But lots of folks like details on how the mega-event is conducted and how the stars themselves feel, or say they feel, about the coveted award and its attendant hoopla and hype. A less than flattering portrait of the industry emerges in this loose compendium of anecdotes, gossip, and quotes.

Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 641-648) and index.
