First blurb and first notice
Recently, I received my first blurb for my new edition of The Diary of a Lost Girl. It was from Lon Davis, a film historian and the author of Silent Lives and King of the Movies: Francis X. Bushman.
Lon Davis said, "Thomas Gladysz is the leading authority on all matters pertaining to the legendary Louise Brooks. We owe him a debt of gratitude for bringing the groundbreaking novel, The Diary of a Lost Girl - the basis of Miss Brooks's classic 1929 film - back from obscurity. It remains a fascinating work."
Today, the first newspaper notice of the book also appeared, in my (San Francisco) neighborhood paper, the Noe Valley Voice. Here it is.
Any San Francisco neighbors can find the book at Cover to Cover on 24th street in Noe Valley. Here is the San Francisco Chronicle link to my book signing event on July 17th at the Castro Theater in San Francisco. Onward and upward!
