Pseudo-memoir of author's marriage to Marilyn Monroe and his involvement with the House Unamerican Activities Committee in the 1960s. Told through the thoughts of the main character, Quentin, a lawyer who is to defend another lawyer who is to appear before the HUAC and who intends to name names: not unlike his own experience in the Hollywood realm. Quentin has been married and divorced, remarries to a Marilyn Monroe type character (who dies under similar circumstances), and has a third wife waiting in the wings. Rather controversial and recondite in spots with a dearth of scenery and props. While Quentin interacts with the characters in his mind, he addresses his thoughts predominately an invisible âListener.â Definitely not for the casual reader.
