With trademark deftness and literary sleight-of-hand, the story slowly unfolds, bringing in a popular movie star doing his stint on Broadway, a nervous gofer with a fascinating past, a pair of psychopathic boys, the sheriff of a small Nebraska town, drug dealers, a cringing cat, a terrorized leading lady, and an ancient theater critic. And, of course, Charles. Never one to be merciful with her characters, OConnell wrings them out until they've shed every last drop of blood and tear. If only she hadn't used so many italics. It's a 4.
You won't find an author website; O'Connell doesn't believe in them.
