Doesn't really hold up. I had remembered this book and "The Moon's a Balloon" fondly from reading them when I was in my 20's. The re-read today doesn't satisfy - where before, Niven came off as witty and sophisticated, now he just seems kind of mean and gossipy. The book jumps around quite a bit, as it's a collection of disparate memories of his time in Hollywood, and the vignettes are well-written enough, but there just seems to be little "meat". A disappointment.
