10-Dancing at Ciro's by Sheila Weller

Sheila Weller's memoir of her childhood is a fascinating look into the Hollywood of the 50s. Her Uncle Herman Hover is the owner and operator of Ciro's the place to be seen by all Hollywood stars.

But life isn't as rosy as it seems. Weller's insecure and unfaithful neurosurgeon father is threatened by his Hollywood Journalist wife's close relationship with her brother.

While this memoir takes place in the 50s it is the stuff of today's People Magazine and The National Inquirer.
