“Simple, restrained, intelligent, well-structured, witty, irresistibly relentless, forthright in diction, and untainted by the sensational, Play It As It Lays is a book of outstanding literary quality.” ―Library Journal
“[A] scathing novel, distilling venom in tiny drops, revealing devastation in a sneer and fear in a handful of atomic dust.” ―J. R. Frakes, Book World

With Harvey Weinstein and other’s behaviour finally coming to light, this book is worth reading now more than ever.
It’s Didion, so this isn’t a simple case of good versus evil, but it does give some idea of what it is like to live among the powerful men of Hollywood.
It is a painful, melancholic and challenging read yet one I would want to re-visit (and there aren't too many books one can say that about). Packed with imagery yet a short-ish book with over 80 chapters that allows easy digestion.
It gives you a good insight that although the surroundings ( California,Vegas,) are nice, life in the 60's was crazy
