In the aftermath of the 2003 Academy Awards, Max and Elena- he's an Oscar-winning writer/director-open their Holywood Hills home to a group of friends and neighbors, industy insiders and hangers-on, eager to escape the outside world and dissect the latest news, gossip, and secrets of the business. Over the next ten days, old lovers collide, new relationships form, and sparks fly, all with Smiley's signature sparkling wit and characterization. With its breathtaking passion and sexy irreverence, Ten Days in the Hills is a glowing addition to the work of one of our most beloved novelists. From the Trade Paperback edition.

(Day 11 - #SweetJane)

*My favorite book by “sweet” Jane Smiley is “Ten Days in the Hills.” It takes place shortly after the (fictional) 2003 Academy Awards ceremony, at a house party in the Hollywood Hills. Present are a director and his girlfriend, his ex-wife and her guru, and their daughter, among others. Smiley‘s novel (based on the “Decameron”) is peopled with spoiled navel-gazers obsessed with love and (the Iraq) war.
