Felix, a film scholar who runs a Monday night movie club in what was once a vaudeville theater, is confronted by the ghost of Lois Weber, a trailblazing motion picture director from Hollywood's silent film era. Lois invites Felix to revisit scenes from his past as they are projected onto the cinema's big screen. There's his daughter Aliza, a Gen Y writer for New York Magazine who is trying to align her post-modern feminist beliefs with her lofty career ambitions; his sister, Frances, with whom he once shared a complicated bond of kindness and cruelty; and Verna, a fiery would-be contender for the 1951 Miss Rheingold competition.
Film scholar Felix Funicello from Wishin' and Hopin' is confronted by the ghost of a Hollywood silent film director who invites him to revisit scenes from his past and gain insights into the lives of three women who indelibly shaped his life.

So far I have enjoyed each and every one of Wally Lamb's books but this one is a big fat disappointment. I made myself read it, but I couldn't even get halfway, I was sure it would get better but it just didn't. I will however continue to be a fan of his as previously he never let me down!

Not a bad read but not his best. Loved his other books though and still a big fan.

This is a fun read but with a little depth. I always enjoy Wally Lamb's books. And I'd like to go back and see myself as a child - wouldn't you? The protagonist learns about his family's history and why it happened the way it did.
