The hero of A Way of Life, Like Any Other is a child of Hollywood, and his life was once a glittery dream.

His father starred in Westerns, his mother was a goddess of the silver screen and the family enjoyed the high life on their estate, Casa Fiesta. But his parents’ careers have crashed since then and their marriage has broken up. His mother sets out on an intercontinental quest for a man, while her mild-mannered but manipulative former husband clings to his memories in California. Their son struggles to keep faith with his family and to get by himself. This coming-of-age story combines keen insight and devastating wit to hilarious and heartbreaking effect.
