The review of this Book prepared by fran laniado

Maggie splits with her husband and flees to Los Angeles to her friend Emily. This is very out of character for her and she does things there the old Maggie walsh would never have dreamed of - kissing women, wearing tights on her head, and getting drunk.

After the collapse of her marriage, the notoriously sensible Maggie Walsh, younger sister of Claire (“Watermelon”) and elder sister of Rachel (“Rachel's Holiday”) escapes to LA. In Hollywood, she discovers not only the glamorous world of movie making and beautiful people, but more importantly, much about herself.
