LA Clichéd: If You're a Hollywood Type, You Can't Write
This one has been making its rounds among the blogs. New York Times book reviewer Charles McGrath had this to say while talking about actor Carrie Fisher's new memoir: "What her Hollywood upbringing doesn’t account for is Ms. Fisher’s manifest intelligence and adroit way with words. She is one of the rare inhabitants of La-La land who can actually write and has published four novels, the best of which, the semi-autobiographical “Postcards From the Edge,” became a prize-winning movie with a script by Ms. Fisher herself." Really? La-La land? They're still using that?
