For Lovers of Forgotten Books

How I love finding little gems like the following which one blurb compares it to Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls. Truth be told, it may not be exactly up there with Susann classic, but it sure was a fun read:

WALK ON GLASS by Lisa Robinson (Ace, 1983)

WALK ON GLASS, penned by then-syndicated columnist to the stars Lisa Robinson, is a fun and fascinating novel about, you guessed it, show business, more specifically the music industry. Heroine with the golden voice Lindel James suffers greatly in the name of talent. Her voice may be hot, but, boy, is her life in cold shambles. Robinson clearly has fun creating a world filled with double-crossing dreams and empty synthetic promises--a variation of the same theme, perhaps, but made with panache and flair. Readers will need plenty of sunscreen for this sizzler. It is a one sitting (or lying) read worthy of any beach read seeker.-----Martin Boucher
