So I’ve been thinking, what sort of idiot would say to her one connection in Hollywood, “I’d rather you didn’t read the book”? I changed my mind. Go ahead! Buy my book! Read my novel! Pass it around! Or maybe you could just get some celebrity to carry it around while paparazzi are present. Personally, I think it would make a great movie – sort of a cross between “Blue Crush” (though most people don’t mention the surfing) and “Not Without My Daughter” or, as my publisher puts it, “Lost in Translation” meets “Kramer vs. Kramer.”
And by the way, it’s fiction!
P.S. I hope your family is well.
