Book Buzz: Mercury Pictures Presents

Mercury Pictures Presents  by Anthony Marra

Maria Lagana immigrates with her mother from Italy to Los Angeles in the 1940's to escape her past. Her father has run afoul of Mussolini's government and is now in exile. As an adult, she has risen in the ranks of the B-movie production company, Mercury Pictures. But America is teetering on the brink of war and Maria struggles to maintain her professional and personal stability, especially when a stranger from her father's past threatens to upend everything. A lush and descriptive examination of those who must constantly evolve who they are to survive.
