Summary

"Erickson is as unique and vital and pure a voice as American fiction has produced."-Jonathan Lethem A film-obsessed ex-seminarian with images of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift tattooed on his head arrives on Hollywood Boulevard in 1969. Vikar Jerome enters the vortex of a cultural transformation: rock and roll, sex, drugs, and-most important to him-the decline of the movie studios and the rise of independent directors. Jerome becomes a film editor of astonishing vision. Through encounters with former starlets, burglars, political guerrillas, punk musicians, and veteran filmmakers, he discovers the secret that lies in every movie ever made.
