Plot
The luckless writing team of Philip Cavanaugh and Claire Simmons is lured to Hollywood by their shifty pal Gilbert+s offer of an improbably high-profile screenwriting gig. The job proves even more ill-gotten than they+d feared, but just as Claire packs her bags, enter sexy megastar Stephen Donato, the monarch of Philip+s fantasies and a man with a Problem.Stephen, secretly gay, has gotten wind of a memoir to be penned by his aunt Lily, a washed-up actress with more than enough TNT to blow the hinges off his closet. Philip, smitten, proposes a bargain: if they can write Stephen+s next picture, Philip will do double duty as Lily+s ghostwriter, providing Stephen a spy and an agent of influence in the enemy camp. What could go wrong?Well, for starters there+s the arrival of Moira Finch, the trio+s old nemesis and as cunning a wolf as ever donned a sheep suit. Thanks to Moira+s machinations, Philip soon finds himself center stage in a rapidly escalating fiasco involving call boys, blackmail, enraged publicists, vengeful DAs, and the single most ill-judged sex act a married megastar has ever committed. Written with the manic brilliance and nonstop hilarity Keenan brought to both his previous two Philip and Gilbert books and the dizzy farces he scripted for Frasier, MY LUCKY STAR sends up Hollywood pretense higher than it+s ever been sent before.
