"In a time not long from now, the veil between fantasy and reality is ripped asunder--creatures of myth and fairy tale spill into the mortal world. Enchanted yet horrified, humans force the magical beings Underground, to colonize the sewers and abandoned subway tunnels beneath their glittering cities. But even magic folk cannot dwell in harmony, and soon two Worlds emerge: the Lightworld, home to faeries, dragons and dwarves; and the Darkworld, where vampires, werewolves, angels and demons lurk. Now, in the dank and shadowy place between Lightworld and Darkworld, a transformation is about to begin. Ayla, a half faery, half human assassin, is stalked by Malachi, a Death Angel tasked with harvesting mortal souls. They clash. Immortality evaporates, forging a bond neither may survive. And in the face of unbridled ambitions and untested loyalties, an ominous prophecy is revealed that will shake the Worlds". Size: 0.8 x 4.2 x 6.5 inches., Mira Books, 2009, Anchor, 2008-04-08. Paperback. New. 1400033209 From Publishers Weekly Starred Review. Smiley (A Thousand Acres) goes Hollywood in this scintillating tale of an extended Decameron-esque L.A. house party. Gathering at the home of washed-up director Max the morning after the 2003 Academy Awards are his Iraq-obsessed girlfriend, Elena; his movie-diva ex-wife Zoe and her yoga instructor?cum?therapist?cum? boyfriend Paul; Max's insufferably PC daughter, Isabel, and his feckless agent, Stoney, who are conducting a secret affair; Zoe's oracular mother, Delphine; and Max's boyhood friend and token Republican irritant Charlie. They watch movies, negotiate their clashing diets and health regimens, indulge in a roundelay of lasciviously detailed sexual encounters and, most of all, talk--holding absurd, meandering, beguiling conversation about movies, Hollywood, relationships, the war and the state of the world. Through it all, they compulsively reimagine daily life as art: Max dreams of making My Lovemaking with Elena, an all-nude, sexually explicit indie talk-fest inspired by My Dinner with Andre, but Stoney wants him to remake the Cossack epic Taras Bulba. Smiley delivers a delightful, subtly observant sendup of Tinseltown folly, yet she treats her characters, their concern with compelling surfaces and their perpetual quest to capture reality through artifice, with warmth and seriousness. In their shallowness, she finds a kind of profundity. (Feb.) Copyright ? Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From The Washington Post Reviewed by Chris Bohjalian A violent war has begun, and a small group of family and friends has taken refuge in a secluded house high in the hills to escape the fighting. Actually, they are hoping to escape news of the fighting. They're in southern California. The fighting is in the Middle East. But most of them don't approve of the conflict, and, besides, the house where they've holed up has a pool and a terrific room in which to watch movies. It's March 2003, and the war in Iraq has just begun. Such is the backdrop for Jane Smiley's new novel, Ten Days in the Hills, a work modeled in part on Boccaccio's Decameron. Instead of fleeing the plague, however, the ensemble in Smiley's book is hoping to exist for a short while in a world free of newspapers, television and reports from the front -- distant as that front is. They have withdrawn the night after the Academy Awards to the home of a 58-year-old movie director named Max, "a mansion that cascaded down a mountainside in Pacific Palisades, looked across Will Rogers Memorial Park at the Getty Museum, and had five bedrooms, a guesthouse, and a swimming pool down the mountainside (three flights of stairs) that caught the morning sun." And then there are the gardens. Moreover, this is only the first of two homes -- the second so palatial that it makes Max's place look like a shabby bungalow near LAX -- in which the pilgrims will take shelter. In those mansions, they will tell stories about their lives and their beliefs, and they will forge new friendships and alliances (some sexual, some political). Among the group? There is Max's girlfriend, Elena, an articulate and impassioned opponent of the war who writes self-help books. There is his best friend from childhood, Charlie, newly separated from his wife and hoping to rejuvenate himself with a regimen of vitamin pills he both pops and sells. Charlie supports the war wholeheartedly. There is Max's first wife, the exquisitely beautiful movie star Zoe Cunningham, with whom Max is still friends, and Zoe's new lover, an unflappable holistic therapist (and, perhaps, charlatan). There is Max and Zoe's 23-year-old daughter, Isabel, and Max's agent, Stoney -- who is the son of Max's original agent, who has died of cancer. Stoney and Isabel have been on-again, off-again lovers since Isabel was 16 and might now be willing to allow their clandestine romance to become both public and serious, despite the reality that Stoney is 15 years older than Isabel., Anchor, 2008-04-08
