My lucky star

Amazing E Book My lucky star author Joe Keenan This is t In recent years I ve grown really fond of a certain kind of classic farce full of mistaken identities missed connections misinterpreted statements and schemes gone wrong The pinnacles of that style for me have been the novels of PG Wodehouse the play One Man Two Guvnors and the television show Frasier for which Joe Keenan was a long time writer and producer On the whole I ve also really enjoyed Keenan s short series of comic novels though I did find My Lucky Star to be the weakest of the bunch mainly due to it being about 100 pages too long There s a reason why no Wodehouse novel contains a page number that beings with a 3 At times the number of things going so completely and totally wrong just felt like too much But there are some brilliant set pieces in here as well as many great turns for phrase See for example I mean her last husband was an absolute hunk but Max you could tear him down and build a stadiumAs a kind of summing up I have to give Keenan major credit for being one of the few people who s taken the Wodehousian template and innovated with it in modern times His use of gaystraight identities as part of his mix ups is such a natural evolution for this kind of classic comedy you could almost imagine Shakespeare doing it if things had just been different back then I m not really sure what Keenan s up to these days but I hope that we ll see another major achievement from him soon

    What a clever clever book It started off fairly simply but soon became uite complex with many off shoots developing to the main storyline of hapless and desperate wannabee movieplay writers trying to make the big time in Los Angeles Our main man Philip is intelligent but naïve looking for shortcuts and seeing

    One of three novels by a TV writer who is way too successful in Hollywood to write novels damn his eyes This stuff is just amazing If PG Wodehouse had been born in the late 1950s and had been gay and joyously out and had come of age in Manhattan's gay arts scene he might have written My Lucky Star and its companion novels Blue Heaven and Putting on the Ritz Keenan hangs a feather boa around the great man's voice fabulous
