Briefly noted: A novel from the Siren

If you love old movies, you should know Farran Nehme, who blogs about American film in the persona of Self-Styled Siren, and who has become known in certain circles simply as “the Siren.” James Wolcott describes her as “sophisticated and yet not stuck-up about it.” Like a good actor, Nehme has a broad range. Two examples: her recent post on Jack Carson, and her examination of Pauline Kael from a few years ago.

Nehme recently wrote a novel called Missing Reels, which was published yesterday. What’s it about? Well, gosh, it looks like old movies are involved. Read a bit about it here.
