“Mr. Wilder and Me is a frame story in which Coe gives Calista a present-day narrative arc, but readers will be itching to return to the Fedora set, where Wilder holds court and Diamond laments to Calista about his and Wilder's waning power: "Our last big hit was fourteen years ago." The novel is a gauzy, glittery and wistful paean to two of Old Hollywood's brightest bulbs as well as a disarmingly frank look at the way status can unjustly diminish with age. Unfortunately, that's showbiz.”
