Well, the book is now out in the world and after the frenzied build up to the release date (well, frenzied for me), I now have to sit by and wait for people to read it. Fortunately, D(vorak)-Day provided some fulfillment with the first posted review of Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel over at a website called The Edge.
Full disclosure, Tony Pinizzotto who wrote the review is a dear friend. I even wrote about him on this site a few months back. I knew he was planning on reviewing it, but I never expected something so in-depth and thoughtful. As many of you know, I am a librarian, so I rely heavily on book reviews for ordering. The critiques I encounter seldom provide this much insight into whether something is worth reading. I wish they did, because it would make my job much easier! I am sure many of you are thinking that it’s only a good review because he is a friend. Well, I know Tony to be a man of integrity and I am pretty sure if he thought the book stank he would have just not written it.
Thanks again to Tony for taking the time to read and review the book, and here’s hoping this is the first of many!
