The Deal by Peter Lefcourt

The Deal by Peter Lefcourt is a humorous novel about getting a movie made in Hollywood. What was originally planned as a Benjamin Disraeli Bio pick is turned into an action movie to be shot inYugoslavia. Chaos ensues. It's pretty funny there isn't much new here the backstabbing, drug using oversexed culture has been fodder for decades but it is an enjoyable book. This was published originally in the early 1990s.

Amusingly the cover announces a "new preface" except the preface simply contains the author commenting that he could have updated the cultural references but didn't.


Is available through Abebooks.
