When I was a little girl, I went through an "I'm going to be a fashion designer" phase. I'd sit listening to the UltraLounge Mondo Exotica album and draw weird outfits. Everything I designed was kind of like what Hedy's wearing there!
I can't help but feel like this could be the background for a hilarious rom-com. New Hollywood star is forced to go back to his hometown where he cannot get a moment to spend with the people he cares about because he's being aggressively feted by the locals.
Bolton also wrote GRISSLY'S MILLIONS, an enjoyable slice of Gothic mayhem from Republic, all about a squabbling family of small-town eccentrics, a pair of corpses, and an imperiled heiress. Hard to find, but good fun.
