You may or may not recognize JEFF GILES' name on sight, but if you're a die-hard fan of ABC's late, great classic soap opera One Life to Live, get ready to wonder how the hell you ever lived without his electric, earth-shattering new book for so damn long.  The tome is called Llanview in the Afternoon, and it is an oral history of the soap's extraordinary four-decade run, made up of brand new interviews --- over fifty of them, in fact --- that Giles himself conducted with everybody who was anybody connected with the show, from creator Agnes Nixon and producers Joe Stuart and Linda Gottlieb, to stars like Erika Slezak, Robert S. Woods, Kassie DePaiva, Judith Light, Brynn Thayer, Michael Storm, and countless others.  Llanview is an utterly extraordinary read, and Jeff is stopping by Brandon's Buzz to break down for us in glorious detail how the idea for this book popped into his head to begin with, and how he set about the momentous task of compiling this magnificent masterpiece.
