If you like The Artist you'll love Daisy Waugh's Last Dance with Valentino.One night. One dance. One love to last a lifetime.1916. Leaving war-ravaged London, Jenny Doyle sets sail for New York where she is to work for the de Saulles family. Their home, Gatsby-like in elegance, is rife with intrigue and madness. Only Jenny's friendship with dancer Rodolfo offers escape... until, one tragic day, the household is changed forever.1926. America booms, prohibition rules and Rodolfo has taken his place on the silver screen as Rudolph Valentino. Will the world's most desired film star and his lost love have their Hollywood happy ending, or will the tragic echoes from their time with the de Saulles thwart them one last time?

Customer Reviews

Whilst I was reading this I thought of the film The Artist. With Waugh's vivid description of Hollywood, I was transported back to the 1920s. This book is well-written and once I started it, I couldn't put it down. At times it made me smile and at other times, it was quite sad. I'd highly recommended it. It would make a great film !
