New in Paperback

The Return of the Player
by Michael Tolkin

978-0-8021-4302-0 * $16.50 paper * In stock

The sequel to the Hollywood classic The Player, and a satire on power, wealth, and family in the twenty-first century

This book has a slick, new package and is getting rave reviews:

“Poor Griffin Mill—once a mover in Los Angeles—is down to his last six million dollars, and that isn’t the worst of it in Tolkin’s sharply observed sequel to The Player. Tolkin’s still got a firm hold on Tinseltown’s fluttery pulse.”— People (Critic’s Choice)

“Tolkin remains impressive as a scorched-earth social satirist.”— The New York Times

“Heartfelt and cynical, a powerful dark comedy that transcends . . . Hollywood satire.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“At once funny, absurd, and hopeful, The Return of the Player is, above all, surprising.”— Kirkus Reviews

“Tolkin's understated style and over-the-top characters continue to amaze. Only in Hollywood could this bizarre tragicomedy seem even remotely plausible. Recommended for collections with readers lusting for the lives of the rich and famous.” — Library Journal
