“No Business: Clawing Through the Back Doors of Show Biz” (published by Archway Publishing) shares Arturo Armand Hammer’s unpredictable exploits as he reveals the reality of the entertainment sphere that has defined the United States and the world at large.

In the novel, Hammer tells the anecdotes and colorful stories from his life, including a romp through Hollywood’s cult of celebrity, New York’s commercial art explosion and the international music scene, before finding himself cast into the dark regions of international narco-politics and the expanding brutalities defining post-war America.

“The narrative voice is fairly unique, very smart and quite accessible as well as being absurdly funny,” Hammer says. “It deals directly with the problems which arise when celebrities are elevated to positions of political authority, mendacity in media, as well with the transitory nature of stardom and the hard fall from its grace.”

Inspired from the author’s personal experience in the media and study of international politics, the book aims to not only clarify the distinction between art and entertainment but also portray show business — the players and machinations — as it is.
