A NovelBook - 2015
An unseen narrator guides us through the dark fairy tale of Dorothy White, an aspiring actress who 'never quite figured how to get out of her own way.' Her perfect marriage to an equally golden actor, Dale, quickly turns into one of jealousy and violence. Dorothy ends the marriage yet begins a legacy of self-destruction for the failed couple, as well as their two children, Clover and Dylan. But we see the pathos in Dorothy's attempts to get back on track, to be a good woman, mother, and grandmother.
