Publisher's Summary

Renaissance man Rupert Holmes, who has won Tony, Grammy, and Emmy awards for everything but the kitchen sink, returns to delight readers with his first novel. When a wry young journalist known for her celebrity interviews begins a book-length piece on singer-actor Vince Collins, she discovers that he and his comedy-team partner, Lanny Morris, are less than an open book. On- and off-stage, they are inseparable, until a mysterious death casts a shadow upon their friendship. When the pair parts ways, the journalist finds herself caught between them, knowing more about them than they realize, and less than she would like, but increasingly fearful of knowing too much. As the punning title suggests, getting at the truth could lead her into a funhouse of lying mirrors.

great fun

Thanks for the above review or I never would have known about this great book. It was witty, fun, evocative, suspenseful and even touching at times. Great writing, superb narration. I loved re-living bits of 70s culture through the author's wry descriptions. I laughed out loud many times. Highly recommended. Some adult content.

Period Piece

...but still a stunning read! This book took a little time to get going, and I almost quit a few times but once you're hooked it's great. I'm not exactly sure why the story was set in the 80's (or late 70"s? not certain) and the technology and current events are a little dated, along with the flashbacks to 50's humor, but it doesn't matter one bit. Perhaps certain plot twists depend on the story happening pre-internet and pre-cellphones, but anyway I thoroughly enjoyed this rich and detailed narrative. The author does an admirable job of impersonating a woman and totally pulls it off, complete with the late 70's pre STDs pre-feminist perspective. Part trendoid commentary, part whodunit, part comedy...I loved every minute!
