Novelist Charlie Smith takes on the illusion and madness of America's fantasy factory. Hollywood is home for Smith's narrator, Will Blake, the scion of two generations of movie folk, himself an actor by default, though a good one, for who could better play a role or steal the show than a homeboy, raised where make-believe is every bit as real as what is real.
