Author Rick Lenz is Today’s Honoree

About The Book:

How many lives does Jack have to blow before getting it right? And is sleeping with Marilyn Monroe worth getting murdered again?

“Compelling… Fascinating…Shades of Groundhog Day and It’s a Wonderful Life.”
— Forward Reviews.

“Rich, thought-provoking…A terrific page-turner…” — US Review of Books

“It’s just about impossible to put down.” — Bret Easton Ellis, New York Times best selling author

“I was particularly struck by how masterfully the author captured Marilyn Monroe. It’s no easy task to capture such an iconic figure who is now so heavily and elusively cloaked in myth, but I thought Rick Lenz portrayed her so well that I wondered if he’d actually met her. I don’t know if he has or not, but I almost felt I had by reading this book. I also enjoyed the way he placed the reader in LA of the 1950’s—a time still close enough to Hollywood’s golden era that it’s still visible to the naked eye. I felt like I’d traveled back with Jack to a time I’d love to have experienced myself.”
— Martin Turnbull, author of The Garden of Allah novels.
