Real Life: A Novel

A screenwriter is about to discover that in life there are no rewrites

Martin Benson writes scripts for porn films. He didn’t always aspire to be a screenwriter; he once had dreams of becoming a great journalist. But life has a way of interfering with the best-laid plans. In this darkly captivating novel, Martin shares the story of his past— and a future that is yet to be written.
Martin’s search for that elusive thing called happiness takes him back to the Norfolk village of his youth. There, he meets and moves in with schoolteacher Suzi Richards, whose biological clock is ticking. But he is haunted by Elaine Keenan, the gorgeous actress who got away. Then one day the phone rings, sending Martin on a search for his lost love and a final reckoning with the past.
Filled with angst and longing, Real Life charts one man’s course back through his own history—a witty, lively account that blurs the line between art and reality, with an ending you will never see coming.
