Liz Kay
Part-time poet and recent widow Stacy Lane is a bit lost. She is raising two boys on her own in Nebraska, and she hasn’t published or written anything new in a long time. Her lull is broken when she is asked to help adapt her book, a feminist retelling of Frankenstein, into a film. She flies to Hollywood to meet with the notoriously troubled and brilliant Hollywood actor, Tommy DeMarco. However unlikely a romance between them may seem, there is something there, no matter how hard they try to deny it. But they need to figure out what they want before they tear each other apart. This unflinching romance does have a healthy dose of escapism, but it also paints a funny, painful, and complex picture of love – in all its messy glory.
