Praise

“Mallon’s sparkling latest … draws inspiration from real-life actor Dick Kallman’s career on Broadway and television and his 1980 murder. . . . Peppering the juicy drama of Dick’s ambition and unrequited love with pop cultural references, as well as cameos from Dyan Cannon and Kaye Ballard, Mallon creates a fascinating, page-turning tale. Readers will be swept off their feet.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Superb. . . . Fluidly written with well-realized characters, the novel is great gossipy fun to read. Film and theater buffs will be delighted.”
Booklist

“In this funny, vicious tale of ambition and moral corrosion, Thomas Mallon turns his rapier intelligence and seismographic sense of the workings of power to the worlds of Hollywood and Broadway. Among imperishable legends and declining stars, he chronicles desperate competition and half-open secrets, the longing for the next new thing and the lure of the past. Up With the Sun is a novel as stark as a Greek drama and as delicious as gossip.”
Garth Greenwell, author of Cleanness and What Belongs to You

“Thomas Mallon has been America’s premier historical novelist for a decade. Up With the Sun cinches the accolade. It’s New York City in the aching 80’s. The murder of show-biz bottom feeder/monster Dick Kallman and his male lover ramifies throughout the turmoil of the decade—in a stunning hybrid of Tom Wolfe’s The Bonfire of the Vanities and frontline reports from a beleaguered gay demimonde. This book packs period pizzazz and heartbreaking intimacy. And, as always with Mallon—it’s a page-turning blast.”
—James Ellroy
