The return of the player
Grove Press ;
Published to great acclaim and adapted into a celebrated movie by Robert Altman, The Player defined the new Hollywood and became a cult classic. In The Return of the Player , film executive Griffin Mill, who got away with murder, is out to make a killing. Determined to escape a Hollywood and a world he believes are dying, Griffin needs a safe haven, a private island somewhere in the South Pacific with an airstrip and high ground. But he's broke, down to his last $6 million. He has one last desperate plan, to quit the studio and convince Phil Ginsberg, an almost billionaire who aspires to 'really savage wealth,' to become his partner. Meanwhile, his personal life is falling apart. He is impotent and allergic to Viagra. His second marriage is broken, perhaps permanently, and he's beginning to think he shouldn't have divorced his first wife. And if that's not enough, Griffin even has to commit another murder when his plan nearly collapses. With The Return of the Player , his fourth novel, Tolkin again delivers a brilliant, incisive portrait of power, wealth, family, and contemporary society gone out of control.
