‘When the new century roared, she threw a custard pie in its face. When the cameras rolled, she became a star.’ Melia Nord was a phenomenon of the silent movies.
As fast-paced as a police detective – and with whodunnit, colourful characters and enough drama to make a film precursor to L.A. Confidential – Celluloid Peach tells the tale of an ill-fated actress and her star-crossed lover working in the early days of American movies. A riveting fictional story of romance and tragedy, the novel tracks the true history of the dawn of Hollywood, how the film industry moved from small New York City studios to California. Steeped in vivid early 20th century details, crackling dialogue and non-stop action, Celluloid Peach is impossible to put down.
