Descrição da editora
Zoe isn't exactly the intellectual type, which is why she doesn't recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher when she stumbles into his apartment...and into his life. It's also why she doesn't know that Rocher is supposed to be dead.
Turns out, Rocher faked his death years ago to escape his critics, and has been making a killing releasing his new work as "lost manuscripts," in cahoots with his editor/ex-wife Agathe. Neither of them would have invited a crass party girl like Zoe into their literary conspiracy of two, but now that she's there anyway. . . .
Zoe doesn't know Balzac from Batman, but she's going to have to wise up fast... because she's sitting on the literary scandal of the century!
Bestselling French cartoonist Bagieu makes her English-language debut with this absorbing, fast-paced erotic literary drama. Twenty-something Zoe is frustrated by her unfulfilling relationship and her demeaning job as a product representative for trade shows, where she is routinely objectified by men. On a break, she spots a man in a window nearby and ends up entering his home. Because she's never even set foot in a bookstore, she doesn't recognize world-famous author Thomas Rocher. As her relationship with Rocher deepens, another woman who is still in his life (for mysterious reasons) complicates matters and then the story takes an unexpected yet satisfying twist. Bagieu's character designs are brilliant, reflecting the emotions and energy of all the players, with a color scheme that highlights the mood in a loose, lively style. Though the ending comes out of left field, what comes before a funny and fresh exploration of authorship and a writer's relationship to fame is utterly charming.
