Enthusiastic welcome to my favorite mentor, Al Martinez, at my Book Launch Party at the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in March, 2013.
“Nobody” is the kind of book you want to read from cover to cover in one sitting. It’s both funny and informative, which is a rare combination in any piece of writing. LoLo, as her grandchildren call her, allows us not only into her super-active life but into the lives of those who reside in the Kingdom of Showbiz, a mythical empire that stretches from Beverly Hills to Hawaii, taking in places as diverse as Hollywood and Phoenix. You’ll roar with laughter as she fights wild pigs in Maui and grumble with anger as she fends off human pigs in Tinseltown. Nobody is bound to be a best seller. Buy it. You’ll love it!
