Reviews Are Rolling In!

Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 320

Book Cover

One of the fringe benefits of publishing a book relating to Golden Age Hollywood is that there is a very active and passionate community of classic film bloggers who are more than happy to devote some space to reviews. Ann Dvorak: Hollywood’s Forgotten Rebel has been out for less than two weeks and there are already two blogs that have posted thoughtful and in-depth reviews.

First up is our pal Vienna who has been a frequent commenter here and was kind enough to devote some space to Ann and me recently. I am especially amazed because she had to wait for the book to arrive overseas, but had it read and reviewed in a matter of days! Much to my relief, her assessment was positive and you can take a look over at Vienna’s Classic Hollywood blog.

Next up is KC’s review at Classic Movies. I hope I don’t sound like I’m bragging when I share that it’s another thumbs up from this blogger who has been around for quite a few years now. I was especially pleased to see that University Press of Kentucky provided a review copy which means the book is officially making rounds.

Over the years I often wondered if I were writing a story that no one would be interested in reading. So, thanks again to these two bloggers for moving Ann to the top of the pile, easing my extreme anxiety, and soothing my fragile ego. I really appreciate it. Here’s to hoping these are two of many reviews coming down the pipeline!

    I’m not a blogger or professional reviewer – just a reader – but I think you’ve written a very good book. Many thanks from this Dvorak fan.
