Synopses & Reviews
The much anticipated follow-up book from Wendy C. Ortiz, author of EXCAVATION, available now!
"Hollywood Notebook transforms pain and joy directly into an amazing new language, one that brilliantly transcends the limits of genre and style. A warm and writhing vision of those days we all spend listening to music in the dark, of evenings outside on a roof in the warmth of another, of loss and learning to turn that loss into words. Simply put: This is an exceptional book that will resonate with you." David Connerly Nahm, author of Ancient Oceans of Central Kentucky
"Unflinching and stunning, Hollywood Notebook is composed of people and places left behind but not forgotten. ‘I don’t really waltz, I tramp in,’ Wendy C. Ortiz writes. She’s a writer who doesn’t hide, even when a helicopter shines a searchlight through her window as she lies naked in the bath. I revel in her boldness and trust her voice, moving through her past ‘like fire on the move.’" Chelsea Hodson, Pity the Animal
