MISADVENTURES is a sort-of-fictional story based on the life of a gay and up-and-coming screenwriter, named Craig Clybourn, and his "misadventures" in the showbiz industry in Los Angeles with his own rather strange group of friend's. Dandy Rio, Craig's best friend since college and star of her own sitcom, That's Just Dandy, was my favorite out of the bunch. She was always self-reliant and didn't care what everyone thought of her. She was Craig's right hand and was always there for him during his good times and bad times, and vice versa. I think what really drew me into the story was the strong relationship between Craig and Dandy. I liked the fact that they always supported each other, even when they were separate. I also enjoyed reading about the rise and fall of Craig's relationships with his two boyfriends, Damon and Godfrey, the first one of which played Aladdin in the live Disney musical. I really enjoyed the fact that MISADVENTURES had an "all-star cast" with many famous names that you may recognize and how the characters in the book interacted with them. For instance, there was one incident where they were at the MTV Movie Awards and Craig sat next to Alicia Silverstone to ask her if she wanted to play the lead female character in Deck Games, his very first screenplay which he adrored so much. MISADVENTURES IN THE (213) is a really funny and entertaining book with a few suprising twists near the end. I enjoyed this story so much because of its characters that were so realistic, it almost felt like they were my own friends. I give a standing ovation to Dennis Hensley for writing such an entertaining novel. You just have to pick this book up!
