AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in a glamorous and seedy Los Angeles, Hollywood Ending is a story that will make your heart skip a beat. Pink-haired Hilda and endearing punk Benji, both seventeen, have an obsessive hobby - they haunt the places where Hollywood celebrities have died.

In rundown Echo Park, once the hub of the movie business, they find the squalid apartment where a second-rate silent movie star stabbed himself to death with nail scissors. Its current tenant is Hank, an old man with a mysterious past.

While Benji dives deeper into the cult of celebrity death, Hank and Hilda make an unlikely pair. Then Jake the screenwriter turns up. What's his story?' Source:http://textpublishing.com.au/ (Sghted 22/12/2009).
