Best Books, My lucky star author Joe Keenan This is very good and. Keenan a former writerproducer of Fraiser which I don t believe I have ever actually seen a full episode of does an impressive job with this comedic novel about a trio of screenwriters an old Hollywood family with a whole heap of skeletons in its Bel Air closets and a newly opened spagay brothel Much of the plot which is actually incredibly tightly woven with many seemly insignificant details having surprising payoffs revolves around the efforts of starstruck Philip to help protect movie star Stephen Donato from being outed as gay by his memoir writing aunt however as one would expect nothing goes uite as planned This book is very funny choice line Here was no brainless Hollywood hunk Here was a man of vision a passionate and sensitive idealist and I prayed with all my heart that he might someday instill these noble ualities in me preferably via fellatio Hee and sufficiently sharp edged if never too nasty I think what Keenan was aiming for was something like Jeeves and Wooster Do Hollywood and he s not far off

The main topic to read with book details isbn 9780316013352 format. I really loved this book because it was so funny Not every page was laugh out loud but on every page there was something that made me chuckle The witty somewhat catty style of the novel as well as the outlandishness of the plot both make it an amusing read I only hesitate to give it five stars because parts of the book are a little racy and I really did not enjoy that as much but that s a matter or personal taste Aside from that I cannot recommend the book strongly enough Phillip Cavanaugh is a struggling writer He works part time as a courier and when he comes face to face with a very successful former high school classmate as he is rain drenched wearing his hideous uniform and forced to carry packages he thinks that he has hit rock bottom His best friend and writing partner Claire is likewise disillusioned She has just broken up with her cheating boyfriend and forced to work as a rehearsal pianist to pay the bills Just then the two receive the opportunity of a lifetime Their friend Gilbert has gotten them a job adapting a World War II novel for the big screen Phillip and Claire think their ship has at last come in Alas things are not always as they seemEverything in sunny Los Angeles starts off well enough Phillip Claire and Gilbert have a meeting with the producer and get the greenlight to go ahead and write the script They have glamorous dinners at posh restaurants with Gilbert s mom and studio executive step dad They hobnob with celebrities Things uickly start to unravel The true nature of the spec that Gilbert wrote to get them the job could very much endanger their chances of staying on the project if discovered The book is mushy And while it s exciting when two very famous faces sign on to do the movie it also may mean that the trio will be fired in favor of established writers They concoct a scheme to stay on as the screenwriters by Philip also working as a double agent and ghostwriting a tell all book by the star s estranged aunt He is to report back all the secrets she s spilling Things are farther complicated by a spa that may actually be a brothel and a DA who is determined to bring about the downfall of one of the stars Will this be a big break or a big mistake for Phillip Claire and Gilbert Follow along for all the hijinks by reading My Lucky Star You ll be glad you did
