"Delaney serves up a splendid fictional biography of Cary Grant, charting the film star's path toward an 'endless conundrum of fame'...Delaney vividly captures the intoxicating and toxic fumes of Hollywood, where 'egos go to be crushed,' and presents an alluring amalgam of fact and fiction. Breezy and entertaining, Delaney's portrait perfectly befits the glamour and fakery of his subject."

- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Imagination meets biography in this novel about Cary Grant...Grant's life is not the happily-ever-after film where hero and heroine kiss as the credits roll. Instead he is alone and frightened, desperate to be seen, to be heard, to be loved...A beautifully imagined, sympathetic portrait of a flawed icon."

- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
