內容簡介


《莉莉和她的王冠》作者最新真誠巨獻。

1990年代的紐約,詹姆斯在好幾年的耕耘之後,終於成功將敘述自己失能家庭的自傳式小說賣給一個剖有聲望的出版社,出版社老闆兼編輯賈姬和其他同事一樣,愛上了詹姆斯這本真誠不做作的作品。

但就在即將出版之際,詹姆斯察覺到這本小說中的內容,將會威脅到現已處在危險邊緣的親情、愛情,他的憂慮導致小說遲遲無法完成……

賈姬鼓勵詹姆斯以最真實的一面為這本小說畫下句點,並且也鼓勵他勇敢面對自己和家人的關係。最後,在詹姆斯發現了一個家人間隱藏已久的祕密之後,他才發現當時賈姬所說背後有有更長遠的計畫。

史蒂芬‧羅利再次交出一本真實、有趣的小說,敘述作家和編輯之間的關係,如何深刻且永久的改變一個人的人生。

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a novel about a struggling writer who gets his big break, with a little help from the most famous woman in America.

After years of trying to make it as a writer in 1990s New York City, James Smale finally sells his novel to an editor at a major publishing house: none other than Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Jackie--or Mrs. Onassis, as she's known in the office--has fallen in love with James's candidly autobiographical novel, one that exposes his own dysfunctional family. But when the book's forthcoming publication threatens to unravel already fragile relationships, both within his family and with his partner, James finds that he can't bring himself to finish the manuscript.

Jackie and James develop an unexpected friendship, and she pushes him to write an authentic ending, encouraging him to head home to confront the truth about his relationship with his mother. Then a long-held family secret is revealed, and he realizes his editor may have had a larger plan that goes beyond the page...

From the bestselling author of Lily and the Octopus comes a funny, poignant, and highly original novel about an author whose relationship with his very famous book editor will change him forever--both as a writer and a son.
