The novel follows Beau Rosenwald, who arrived in Hollywood broke but by the late '70s has helped to build the most successful agency in Hollywood. The book chronicles Rosenwald as he rises, falls, and rises again — and goes to war with his partner.

The book, published in March, is billed as "a sweeping narrative about fathers and sons, the movie business, and the sundry sea changes that have shaped Hollywood and, by extension, American life."
