Delayed Rays of A Star - Amanda Lee Koe

| /
The novel takes three real-life women in the cinemas (German actress Marlene Dietrich, the world's first Chinese American star Anna May Wong, and director of propaganda films Leni Riefenstahl) and spins a tale of how their life trajectories cross. All three women were pioneering in their work, and each, in her own way, was also harmed by the times and systems she lived within. It is the moral tightropes each woman walks, the razor thin edge between fulfilling one's ambition and selling one's soul, that is at the core of the novel, one of our favorites from 2019.
