New Book Gives Insider Perspective.

Is there such a thing as too much information?  Not when it comes to Hollywood.

Movie fans obsessively follow their favorite actors on Twitter, read their autobiographies, and buy out issues of celebrity magazines to stay abreast of what’s happening. Now, Hollywood or Bust: Movie Stars Dish on Following their Dreams, Making it Big, and Surviving in Tinseltown gives a unique perspective on what it’s like to live and work where stars are born and movies are made.

Author Susan Marg culled over five hundred quips, quotes, and off-the-cuff remarks of actors, directors, writers, and others involved in the business from magazines, interviews, biographies, autobiographies, and, in this day and age, the Internet.  All told the quotes convey what insiders think about themselves, their lives, their fame, their careers, each other, and the town itself.

“Their observations, on one hand, are caustic, critical, and cynical,” Marg notes, “But they are also eye-opening, amusing, inspiring, and, in some cases, even endearing. She further adds, “Be prepared to be surprised.”

Hollywood or Bust, ISBN 978-0-578-11882-6, is a 182-page paperback book consisting of seven chapters and twenty original photographs.  Topics cover dreams of success to attending the Oscars.  It lists for $14.95.


            Susan Marg is the author of Las Vegas Weddings: A Brief History, Celebrity Gossip, Everything Elvis, and the Complete Chapel Guide, published by HarperCollins.  Since she has moved her field of focus from the City of Lights to the City of Angels, her interest in popular culture has only intensified.
