About the Book:
In Let Go and Go On and On the story of obscure actress Laurie Bird is told in a second-person narrative, blurring what little is known of her actual biography with her roles as a drifter in Two Lane Blacktop, a champion’s wife in Cockfighter, and an aging rock star’s Hollywood girlfriend in Annie Hall. Laurie Bird’s story unravels in a bathtub where she commits suicide at the age of 26, and Let Go and Go On and On draws on this very American story to explore our endless fascination with the Hollywood machine and the weirdness that is celebrity culture.
-Curbside Splendor
