New Fiction: All the Stars in the Heavens – Adriana Trigiani

A new novel by Trigiani is always guaranteed to be fun. Her last historical standalone, The Shoemaker’s Wife, really brought her readership to new levels. Add the sizzle of old Hollywood glamour–it’s based on the actual affair between Loretta Young and Clark Gable—and I think we’re looking at another huge hit for this author the Washington Post calls “a master of palpable and visual detail.”

Publicity launches with People, The View and the Today Show.

Trigiani’s newest fictionalizes Loretta Young’s life, both through her eyes and those of an invented personal secretary, whose closeness with the actress ties the narrative threads together. The author’s impeccable research and lush writing style recreates a plausible day-to-day look into the actress’s life as a staunch Catholic living and working in Hollywood…The focus is on Young’s close relationship with her mother and sisters, her affair with Spencer Tracy, her close friendship with David Niven, and most of all, her rumored romance with the married Clark Gable…as well as the extraordinary measures she went through to hide the subsequent pregnancy at a time when adultery and a child out of wedlock destroyed careers. Trigiani mines her own Italian roots with the character Alda Ducci, a young woman with her own secrets, who, as Loretta’s secretary and friend, navigates the trials of love and fame with her. Eminently readable and richly imagined, Trigiani’s latest will thrill her fans and surely collect new ones.”
Publishers Weekly

  1. Bought book without even opening it or reading the book flaps. What a disappointment. Ms Trigiani’s book, The Shoemaker’s Wife, was so outstanding I just assumed, All The Stars In Heavens, would be great too. I always admired Loretta Young, so it wasn’t that part, but the entire book was a super great letdown. If younger ( no pun intended) readers bought this book, I think photos would have helped. They could have seen how dress and actors looked all those decades ago and maybe tried to emulated them. I will look forward to her next book or read some of her previously published books. C.

  2. I do consider all the ideas you’ve introduced to your post.
    They are really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts
    are very quick for starters. May just you please prolong them a little from
    next time? Thank you for the post.
