Getting to Know the Characters in Jane Smiley’s New Book: Ten Days In The Hills

So far: Movie types, their supporting lovers, family & friends are living out a sexy movie (jealousy not allowed!) in this “you want to get to the next page” novel of ten days in a beautiful Southern California house–a lifestyle that we in Northern California have always known exists. Pulitzer Prize winning author Jane Smiley lives in N. Ca where the high tech riches and hijinks of Silicon Valley might make a good thriller but could they match the imagined and real love-making scenes that our brothers and sisters in So. Cal are accustomed to?

Oh, and…’s 2003 and every so often the characters remember the war in Iraq…..

Does that make sense? I love this book.
