Girl of My Dreams by Peter Davis

Today I have a special feature and the opportunity for one of my readers to win a copy of the just released debut novel Girl of My Dreams by Peter Davis; a sweeping novel of the 1930s that captures the essence of a golden, lurid era when Hollywood became the fantasy capital of the world.

Girl of My Dreams follows a wide-eyed young screenwriter in the 1930s when Hollywood, the Depression, and the Communist Party intersected powerfully in the American psyche. From the glamorous and mysterious star Palmyra Millevoix to the ruthless studio mogul Mossy Zangwill, protagonist Owen Jant struggles to navigate a world that is as seductive as it is toxic. Filled with scandal, romance, murder, riots, and celebrities of the day, Girl of My Dreams shines a spotlight on an American moment in all its magic and malice, glory and greed.
