2008 book 57

Nina Revoyr's The Age of Dreaming
This excellent novel starts up when a young reporter in LA tracks down a formerly famous silent film star, who then reflects back on his rise to fame and his sudden departure from the spotlight in the wake of a murder. It touches on anti-Japanese sentiments in California in the early 1900s and really captures the era of silent films. A/A-.
