Interesting structure -interesting that at 96 he wrote this book. Light and enjoyable.

The author wrote this novel when he was 96; he doesn't show any sign of dementia in the way he writes; he seems up-to-date on modern technology. The novel is a gentle satire of the movie industry, lawyers, and venture capitalists. There are many twists and turns in the plot, which weaves together the stories of different characters. It is not a heavy read, but smooth and interesting.
