Vanitas: A Comedy of New York

from What Noise Productions

A STRICTLY LIMITED NUMBER OF COPIES IS AVAILABLE SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR, MATTHEW WATERHOUSE.

When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true...?

They did, at any rate, for Florinda Quenby, though not in the way she had planned. When she flew out to Hollywood to become a movie star, she could not imagine the terrible struggles ahead of her, from riches back to rags, or that fame and wealth would finally come from an entirely different quarter,her fantastical soup factory in Harlem modeled on the Taj Mahal...

Once she was famous, she became one of New York's grandest hostesses and one of America's most beloved celebrities. Her parties for the Christmas season in her huge, gold-lined apartment overlooking Central park were an unmissable part of Manhattan's social calendar. Those parties grew wilder and wilder every year, until finally she decided to throw one last party, designed to top all the others...

This is a tale of ambition and wealth and fame and vanity. This is Florinda's incredible story.
