Adapt or Wait Tables. It also taught us that survival requires juggling and pivoting, two skills that any freelancer is forced to acquire if they want to keep paying their rent. Adapt or Die is a mix of information, tricks and advice for all the freelancers out there, and the ones who will be stepping onto that playing field as they graduate from college. Written by a freelance writer who has spent the past two decades covering Hollywood and the world of pop culture and fashion, their tips for survival are laced with gossip and references to the famous as well as what they call the secret celebrities whose paths.

They are the celebrities’ celebrities, or secret celebrities as writer Carol Wolper calls them. But besides offering up some pretty clever and ruthless insights, Wolper’s books also make great insider travel guides. Wolper’s second novel, Secret Celebrity, (Riverhead Books) tracks Christine Chase, a 35-year-old, recently divorced filmmaker trying to break out of her professional and personal slump as she shoots a documentary on a cult artist - or secret celeb. She notes the killer margaritas at El Carman, retail therapy at Tracey Ross and the fantastic chopped salads at La Scala, but disses Mr. Chow, championing the service at Ago instead.

Seeking to break out of a personal rut, filmmaker Christine Chase investigates her fiercely private subject's world and learns disturbing truths about the lengths some people will go to for fame.

Qumenalu
I enjoyed reading this novel. THe story is generic- woman trying to make her mark in Hollywood before she gets too old, but it's the way that the story is told that makes it interesting. Christine is 35, about to get divorced, and in search of "it". Her new goal is to produce a documentary about Richard Gault, a "secret celebrity"- he was on the verge on huge success in the 70's, and then he dropped out.
As the story unfolds we meet her cast of characters- they are all artfully drawn characters. Wolper presents us with enough information to make them alive, without going into overload and boring the reader with the minute details of their lives.
The pace of the book is brisk- the lines funny, the character traits are very funny. It is exactly how I want to view a book about Hollywood- light, humorous, a little social commentary.
My only problem with the book is the amount of pop culture references that are thrown in- I realize that any book about Hollywood must include these, but they unfortunetly date a book- the book is out before it's even been published. Two years from now the novel will loose much of its potency, and that's a shame because it is a fun book.

From Marisa D'Vari, author Media Magic, Presentation Magic, & Script Magic
-- Glamor gal Carol Wolper has captured the Tinsel Town I know and love in this delicious romp of the classic Hollywood novel. As a very young studio exec at MGM I'd expected "Hollywood" to be as glitzy as a Carol Wolper novel. Increasingly corporate, Wolper gives color and spice to an industry much more fun to read and fantasize about than live in reality.

Wolper has done it again. This book is just as fun and insightful as Cigarette Girl. I highly recommend this book as an entertaining read but also very wise and witty. I will absolutely be giving it to my friends at Christmas.

This turned out to be a great read. The characters were all well written and the plot was unique. I will definitely try her other book!
