Up Close and Personal by Fern MichaelsShare on:. I had high hopes for a bright and breezy bonkbuster from Leonie Fox's third novel, having read some favourable reviews of her first two books. The title, cover art and blurb suggest a frothy, fun, flirty and sexy read, so I was very disappointed to find this is anything but. The novel centres around three rather stereotypical friends living in the small town of Loxwood. First we have widow Juliet who has just brought back her hunky toyboy husband Dante from Aspen. Juliet has turned her late husband Gus' country home into a hotel to make ends meet and unluckily for Dante there are reminders of Gus everywhere. Now you'd think that these two wouldn't be able to keep their hands off each other as they have met and married in a matter of weeks, but no they seem to slip into a rather comfortable married life immediately and Juliet barely gives Dante much attention.

The finished picture, however, was greatly altered by commercial decisions on the part of the producers, and bore little resemblance to Savitch's biography. Screenwriter John Gregory Dunne , having spent eight years working on the script with his wife Joan Didion , later wrote a book describing his difficult experience, titled Monster: Living Off the Big Screen. Sally "Tally" Atwater Michelle Pfeiffer is an ambitious, aspiring news reporter, who is hired by Miami local news director Warren Justice Robert Redford when she sends in a homemade audition tape. He carefully guides her career to new heights, all the while becoming increasingly attracted to her. Tally soon rises through the ranks of network news to become successful, while Warren's once-stellar career sinks into mediocrity. Furthermore, Tally's ascension takes her away from Warren when she is forced to relocate to Philadelphia. Tally struggles at her new post, in no small part due to the hostility of veteran reporter Marcia McGrath Stockard Channing , who jealously protects her position as the top reporter.
