That's Not Entertainment Miley!

One of the things that made Oscar Season: A Novel so much fun for readers was the behind the scenes look at the entertainment business as it really is. Which brings us to a behind the scenes view of the Miley Cyrus Vanity Fair pictorial hub-bub. Mary's article in the LA Times received a huge response (Mary has interviewed Miley before).

NPR wanted to talk about the whole thing so they asked Mary to call in for a chat.
Listen to the show at NPR--Mary's interview starts in the broadcast at 16:01 on the slider.
