It is the morning after the Academy Awards. Max, an award-winning writer and his lover, Elena, are hosts to a house full of guests including their daughter, a movie star, a healer and an agent. Over the course of the next ten life-changing days, they share stories of Hollywood, watch movies and become entangled by the pool. Sparks fly and tension mounts as this unputdownable tale of love, war, sex, politics, friendship and betrayal moves towards its redemptive end.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A blazing farce, a fiery satire of contemporary celebrity culture and a rich, simmering meditation on the price of war and fame and desire." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"A raunchy survey of the human condition. . . . A modern-day "Decameron,""
--John Updike, "The New Yorker"
"Luxurious. . . . The extremely talented and ever-surprising Jane Smiley . . . deftly transposes the central themes and rich atmosphere of a literary classic to contemporary America."
--"Entertainment Weekly"
"Sprawling, languid, randy . . . "Ten Days in the Hills" is a novel, and a shimmering one at that, of social observations, archly written and mordantly funny."
--"San Francisco Chronicle"
