Nghi Vo consistently creates totally captivating stories, and, at this point, I’ll read anything she writes. This story was a little harder for me to get into (though clearly not that hard since I finished it in the span of a morning). The world felt so real that it you’d told me old Hollywood producers and actors were just monsters masquerading as men I wouldn’t bat an eye. I really loved Luli (and Greta) and this story did an excellent job of addressing racism and homophobia present within these circles and many others. I did find myself wishing a few of the smaller plots had been explored more, but I really enjoyed reading this. This story made me want to go back and read any hollywood golden age media I can get my hands on because this was so captivating in it of itself. I need Nghi Vo to write even more standalone novellas because she is genuinely excellent.
