“Tony shared his manuscript with me on a Friday and asked me to let him know what I thought in the next 30 days. I was done reading on Sunday. Couldn’t put it down. His depiction of Los Angeles in the 50s and 60s brings to mind the great shift that took place over the following two decades – from least diverse major city in the U.S. to most diverse major city in the U.S. Yet, even in its post-war baby boom growth era, it was a city of dreams – whether you were in industry or in The Industry. The authenticity and humility of Tony’s depiction of himself as an awkward (though obviously brilliant) youth is both engaging and heart-rending. Fast read. Must read.”
