A Brilliant Demise: The Strange World of the Dansers—VIEW FINDER by Greg Jolley
Greg Jolley's fictional Danser family blends eccentricity and brilliant obsession in the world of movie making—a family often described as a blend of J.D. Salinger's Glass family and The Addams Family.

"I'm often asked why I write about one family," says author Greg Jolley. "It's like owning a film studio in the 1950s and I have my own delicious cast members to choose from. Most of the Dansers work in the movie industry and are known for passions and obsessions. They live far outside the norms, preferring to pursue their own ambitions and goals, living in stark contrast to everyday normal behavior."
View Finder takes place during Hollywood's Golden Age of greed, corruption, and scandal. The son of the famous actress Elizabeth Stark, BB Danser is caught in the middle of his parent's tumultuous relationship and his father's crushing megalomania and jealousies. Desperate to escape, he becomes obsessed with movie cameras and cinematic storytelling. A roller coaster story of hope and vision, BB searches for the truth about himself and his family in a world of industrialized fantasy making.
