Collected for the first time, three stories about time traveling "talent scout" Detlev Gruber, agent for future film studios sent into the past on missions to recruit actors and filmmakers to renew their careers in the future. But talented people lead troubled lives, and suppose these people don't want to come?

Set against the same background as Kessel's novel Corrupting Dr. Nice, the stories in "Some LIke It Cold" are mysterious, satirical, darkly comic looks at classic Hollywood in all its glory and exploitation. And they present vivid portraits of three of classic film's greatest figures: Marilyn Monroe, Preston Sturges, and Orson Welles.

"Kessel's writing, which recalls the best of such cutting-edge authors as Norman Spinrad and Philip K. Dick, while retaining its own acidic elegance of style, is nothing less than brilliant."
—Austin American-Statesman

"Witty, daring and intelligent, Kessel produces some of the best science fiction in the genre."
—Publisher's Weekly

“John Kessel is one of American SF’s finest writers . . . Occasionally dashing into whimsy, but in general employing a finely calculated combination of realism and satire, Kessel constructs stories of subversive eloquence, their full freight of meaning exploding in the mind a while after reading has ended.”
—Nick Gevers, Locus
