Rated 0

Fiction, Science fiction

A compelling new near-future thriller from award-winning author Walter Jon Williams.

Dagmar Shaw got out of the game . . . and into the movies.

Sean is a washed-up child actor reduced to the lowest dregs of reality television to keep himself afloat. His life was a downward spiral of alcoholism, regret, and failure - until he met Dagmar.

But Sean has secrets, dark even for the Hollywood treadmill of abuse, addiction, and rehab. And Dagmar is a cipher. There are dark rumors about her past - people tend to die around her. Now, she wants Sean for something. A movie, she says, but with her history, who knows what her real game is

Praise for The Fourth Wall

  • An absolute blast of a novel, as scabrous, cynical, wry and unconventionally appealing as its central character - FINANCIAL TIMES

  • Darkly funny and brilliantly cynical - Charles Stross

  • Running on an engine of great characterisation and wit, The Fourth Wall mercilessly skewers Hollywood's star machine - SFX

  • The blending of mystery-thriller, SF, and traditional Hollywood-story elements is hugely successful. The best of the Dagmar Shaw series and one of the author's finest novels - BOOKLIST - starred review

  • The result is a surprisingly funny read. Sean's antics are sarcastic brilliance and Mr. William's book carefully walks the line between sympathy and contempt - PORNOKITSCH
