Event description

Description

Former Los Angeles Times Book Critic Michael Frank portrays his real life family -- the dramas, dynamics and big personalities -- set against the back drop of his hometown Hollywood.

In every family, there's someone who tries to bend the family to his or her will. In the case of Michael Frank, it is the author's brilliant, glamorous and tightly wound Aunt Hankie who, with his uncle, co-wrote the screenplays for The Long Hot Summer, Hud and Norma Ray, among other films. When he was nine, Frank overheard his aunt tell his mother "he's simply the most marvelous child I have ever known and I love him beyond life itself." The consequence of being loved beyond life itself is at the heart of this bizarre and riveting memoir.
