Evan Wyler has just finished a photo shoot. No, he’s not a super model, just a twenty-something New York writer savoring the success of his debut novel. Defined by the media as the “hot young” thing-of-the-moment, Evan captures the attention of Alexa Vere de Vere, a black-clad woman of mystery who’s made the world of celebrity her home. In fact, it’s her religion. Maybe she’s a record producer, maybe she’s a film agent; what is clear is that she wants Evan to write the screenplay of her life story. Spend time with Auntie Name and Sally Bowles… But, Alexa vanishes, leaving him to foot the bill for all the dinners and Armani suits they’ve gone through. Trying to find Alexa, Evan discovers a chain of people who have fallen under her spell and acted as her meal ticket. Alexa puts it: “You’re not the person you were born-who wonderful is?”
