For me, the author’s backstory, in as much as the novel itself, it the author’s explanation of how he got here? That was interesting.
Part of what made the first book so appealing, I liked the way chapters from the character’s fictional fiction thriller were dropped in as pacing, and to help illustrate the inner working of the writer’s mind, the character who was the writer. Metafiction, as it were, and usually a style to steer away from.
So for this one, there are bits and pieces of a movie script, adapted from the fictional novel, and easy to see the satirical takes on the industry.
Think it’s a fun romp, not too serious, with obvious pop culture, pop literature references.
Odd, just an Amazon book.
