ISBN: 0345447654


Binding: paperback

As a reporter for New York's last evening tabloid, Marie Brown writes about the bizarre and the scandalous. But her life is hardly either. She's too single, too tall, and too pragmatic for anything other than her routine-which consists of going to work and going to the library, where she indulges in her one passion, physics, and in conversations with Marco Trentadue, the strange "freelance intellectual" in blue pajamas. Then the trajectory of her life takes an unexpected turn.

Nora Mars-glamour girl, star of stage and screen-is near death. Marie has worshipped Nora since she was in high school. Naturally she will write Nora's obit. When Marie meets Nora's charismatic third ex-husband for an interview, she struggles between a reporter's integrity and plain old lust. What Marie uncovers is a story of a starlet who took the exigencies of fame into her own hands-and the inspiration to do the same with her own love life.
