Women of a Certain Age in Hollywood
"Munter probes the lives of Hollywood women after the lights have gone down in this debut collection of fiction and drama....Munter writes purposefully about the systemic misogyny that has dominated Hollywood throughout its history, from predatory producers on casting couches to women being considered too old before they were out of their 30s. A common theme is the exploitation perpetrated by the various husbands who only continue the damage started by other men... A thought-provoking, well-crafted collection of Hollywood survival stories." - Kirkus Reviews
