The Memory of All That

(1999)
A novel by

 
The price of a soul, or cost of success, for a hero in Hollywood. Robert Peterson, encouraged by easy words and the success of one novel, is a Hollywood innocent. His first lessons are harsh; pornographic films with a waiter's job to pay the rent seem the only option. Then he meets a powerful, eccentric British producer who, liking a Svengali role, adds Robert to his stable of wannabes. But there is a price... Bryan Forbes' powerful new novel is filled with great characters. The women in Robert's life include the wholly ambitious, sexy Amanda; the domesticated Tracey with the morals of an alleycat; the beautiful, empty Lauren, whom only the camera defines. And the men who teach him the lessons of life include a knife-throwing English director more histrionic than his stars, the agents, double-dealing in wives and clients, and the fellow script writers with strange secrets. Who could live in the middle of all this scheming ambition and survive?

    

"A fascinating novel, utterly compelling and wonderfully authentic." - William Boyd
