The novel revolves around Shannon Burke, known in the motion picture world as Gaza de Lure. Under the spell of Wilson Crumb, a prominent director on the one hand, and a drug trafficker on the other, Shannon Burke fell victim to the lure of the "White Sleep."
There comes the great tragedy, inevitable of ourse, she rose, and fell and rose again like a Phoenix from the ashes of her past, only to be plunged again into the dust through lack of resistance.
Intermingled in this wonderful tale of temptation and tragedy there is a counter love story, a tale so rich in splendor and sweetness that it glows against the background of the darker drama like sunlight against a somber cloud.
In "The Girl from Hollywood" Burroughs marks the top note in his genius as a story teller.
