Reviews

"Using a kaleidoscope of perspectives, Silvia Moreno-Garcia skillfully depicts the rise of a starlet in 1950s Hollywood, capturing not only the glamour of poolside parties but also the sordid underbelly of the industry. That alone would be a great read, but she also weaves in the original story of Salome, adding rich layers to a story that bubbles with anticipation and will leave you spellbound."--Fiona Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Spectacular

"I've been a huge Silvia Moreno-Garcia fan since her sensational Mexican Gothic, but this epic of 1950s Hollywood really hits my sweet spot. A pensive Mexican ingenue becomes the talk of Tinseltown when she lands the part of Salome in a big-budget sword-and-sandal biblical epic; meanwhile, a jealous starlet schemes to steal her place in the spotlight. Against their splashy soundstage drama, the real Salome (or is she?) tells her own story of love, revenge, and betrayal. The Seventh Veil of Salome is absolutely not to be missed!"--Kate Quinn, New York Times bestselling author of The Diamond Eye

"I've long been a fan of Silvia Moreno-Garcia. To me, she's one of the most versatile, quirky, and interesting writers around. In The Seventh Veil of Salome, she reveals--veil by veil--layers of emotion, character, the Bible, and Hollywood. What a fun and compelling dance!"--Lisa See, New York Times bestselling author of Lady Tan's Circle of Women

"Whenever I want to read a book I know will be good, I go to Silvia Moreno-Garcia. Her genres are ever changing, her ability to take on a wild story each time is incredible. You never know what she's going to do, but you know it will be a page-turner."--Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones and the Six
