Meet Frankie Jordan, a screenwriter living a rather perilous life in the wilds of Hollywood. She's turning forty, her husband wants a divorce, and all she can think about is the script she can't finish. Enter Jonathan Prince, a confident, seductive twenty-four-year-old agent-in-training. In a town that takes glee in the failure of others, Jonathan's the only one who seems to recognize Frankie's brilliance. So begins the tragic comedy that consumes Frankie's life. The lunacy of trying to sell her script is described in harrowing detail. But it's when her script finally does sell that the real nightmare begins. Longing to discover why Hollywood attracts and rewards so many "little monsters," she's compelled to confront how Jews feel about themselves in a town that both loves and hates its own invention -- the beautiful WASP.
