Kissing Kate
A Novel
Bradford Dillman
ISBN 1-56474-447-7
240 pages, paperback, $14.95
Rolf Victor, a semi-has-been star of stage and screen, is hired to headline an amateur production of Kiss Me Kate in Loma Bella, California (a thinly disguised version of Santa Barbara). The rest of the cast is made up of the denizens of Elsinore, a wealthy retirement community bordering on a golf course in the most exclusive part of the city. Scandals abound, many of them involving a feud between the two leaders of society in the community, Isobel von Braun and Selena Cabot (who plays Kate in the show). Somehow in this parade of egos, adulteries, debaucheries, and phoniness, a play is put on, and it turns out, somehow, to be a hit.
