Abstract:

"Brooding, self-loathing Tom Cartwright is a modestly successful ghostwriter whose ability to spell correctly and meet his deadlines has landed him the job of writing the autobiography of the wildly popular soap-opera star Georgina Nye. His imbibing, chain-smoking agent is swooning, and his offbeat, sweetly supportive live-in girlfriend of five years, Sara, is ecstatic?new carpets!Yet even as he feverishly pens (read: mostly makes up) Georgina?s “straight-from-the-heart” life story (he?s thinking maybe a thoughtful, feminist angle), he is lusting for Georgina herself. Soon Tom?poor, misguided, painfully careening Tom?thinks he can have it all: a woman at home who loves him, and a hot, panting affair with a television diva. With a little planning, can it really be so hard? In this clever, rollicking tale of sexual misadventures and the modern man, Mil Millington hilariously explores the sometimes foolish choices mere mortals can make when that certain chemistry forces us to think not with our heads or our hearts but with . . . well, things that usually lead us straight into serious trouble." -- from publisher's website.
