End of Miss Kind by Donald Rawley

End of Miss Kind

Donald Rawley

Brilliant expose of Hollywood and the quest for fame. It's always summer for the young or powerful but grim for the rest. I'll try think of this tale next time I'm glued to reality TV.

Extract

I know far more than is good for my continued health and happiness, and I am sure something bad is going to happen. Perhaps I have seen too many Hitchcock films. Perhaps my imagination is overworked and my senses are too alert. Paranoia is a new companion, albeit a faceless one.
