Kristin McCloy: Hollywood Savage

Here’s my review of Kristin McCloy’s Hollywood Savage (Washington Square Press):

This review originally appeared in the July 2010 issue of Los Angeles magazine

In Kristin McCloy’s latest (after Velocity and Some Girls), narrator Miles King’s infidelities are so duplicitous, so torrid, you might find yourself taking a few sheepish glances over your shoulder. King, a New York writer, is in L.A. adapting his acclaimed novel to the screen when he begins to suspect his wife of having an affair. He hurtles down a path of paranoid dissolution that leads him into the arms of a lover. The story is a guilty pleasure, but McCloy hefts her book above the potentially trite premise with knockout prose in journal form. // WENDY WITHERSPOON
