A new blurb for my forthcoming novel, Memphis Movie


I just received this life-affirming blurb:

“Few Hollywood movies have any lasting value.  The same can be said of novels about Hollywood.  All the good ones would line a very short shelf.  With Memphis Movie, Corey Mesler adds another permanent treasure to this exclusive canon.  Equal parts expose, memoir and fantasy, Memphis Movie is insightful, satirical, funny and ghostly.  Place Mesler’s novel on that shelf beside They Shoot Horses, Don’t They, Play It as It Lays, Get Shorty, What Makes Sammy Run? and The Day of the Locust.”

William Hjorstberg, author of Fallen Angel (from which the movie Angel Heart was made) and Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan
