Twilight of the Immortal

1 star1 star
As the Great War tore through Europe in the spring of 1916, the privileged stars of Broadway still wore the height of Paris fashions, danced the tango and drank champagne––and ignited a great debate: Stick to the noble tradition of the theater?

Review by: Lustrebook on Sep. 19, 2013 : star star
Engaging and well-written. However, a word of warning to the serious Valentino fan: Prepare to meet the fantasy version of Valentino presented by such discredited writers as Kenneth Anger and David Bret. Indeed, both "Hollywood Babylon" and "Valentino: A Dream of Desire" are cited in the author's bibliography. I wish that the author had expanded her research to include a properly sourced biography of Valentino, such as "Dark Lover". June Mathis also receives very inaccurate treatment, and Valentino's recordings issued only posthumously are noted within the novel as soaring "to the top of the charts" within his lifetime. As a Valentino fan, I was greatly disappointed, however, I do commend the author's writing and ability to sustain a narrative tempo.
