THIS ONE IS MINE
A brilliant comic debut -- hailed by both Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones's Diary) and Gigi Levangie Grazer (The Starter Wife) -- THIS ONE IS MINE is a modern-day Anna Karenina set in Los Angeles about a woman who deliberately upends her life.
When she meets Teddy, a roguish small-time bass player, Violet comes alive, and soon she's risking everything for the chance to find herself again. Also in the picture are David's hilariously high-strung sister, Sally, on the prowl for a successful husband, and Jeremy, the ESPN sportscaster savant who falls into her trap. For all their recklessness, Violet and Sally will discover that David and Jeremy have a few surprises of their own.
THIS ONE IS MINE is a compassionate and wickedly funny satire about our need for more--and the often disastrous choices we make in the name of happiness.
Maria Semple has written for television shows including Arrested Development, Mad About You, and Ellen. She has escaped from Los Angeles and lives with her family on an island off Seattle. THIS ONE IS MINE is her first novel.
