"Worried that books - and book reading - are a thing of the past, novelist Guy Ableman is struggling with his literary career. His publicist disdains his proposals, his publisher wants him to write story apps for smart phones, and his attraction to his mother-in-law (the topic of his current novel) is spiraling out of control. A fiery redhead (just like her daughter), she's the subject of most of his literary (and otherwise) fantasies - but all he can do is write about her. A "humorous, satiric look at modern relationships" (Library Journal), not to mention book publishing and a writer's mental state, this clever novel will appeal to readers who ponder publishing's future."
