Read full description of the books No Mother to Guide Her:
In this very funny entry from Anita Loos, just about every Golden Age of Hollywood stereotype is skewered. When a naive writer takes on the job of morality czar in the murder trial of a man accused of killing seven women, you would think there would be more drama. Instead, laughs ensue.
At the heart of the story is the scandalous diary of the maid of Viola Lake (shades of Clara Bow and Daisy DeVoe here), and the lead character's insistence on finding the silver lining in every conceivable cloud.
There are numerous anachronisms, but that's not the point. Film historians will pick out the references to studio chiefs who hire all their relatives, to publicity agents who want to make bad news disappear, and to the "morality clauses" that tried to make those naughty Hollywood folks behave.
My only suggestion would be to skip the cringe-worthy, painfully unfunny introduction from Kathy Lette, who only shows by her few pages how much more skilled Anita Loos was in comparison.
