Do you ever see celebrities on the red carpet at premieres and other events, and wonder about the people who work behind the scenes to create those photo opportunities? Do you ever consider the advertisements you see for movies and television shows: Who conceptualizes them? Who executes the creative ideas? Why do the marketing campaigns convince you that you want to see the movie?
And what are the lives of the people behind the scenes like? Is the entertainment industry really as cutthroat and competitive as it has been portrayed in various books, movies, and television series?
In her latest book, best selling author Margo Candela provides answers to some of those questions, but Good-Bye to All That is much more than a superficial tale about Hollywood archetypes. It is an intelligent, witty, fast-paced, and surprisingly thoughtful story about one ambitious young woman’s foray into corporate life.
