Since her husband died eight months ago, Staceys been a certified messa poet who cant write anymore, a good mother who feels like shes failing her kids. Shes been trying to redefine herself, to find new boundaries. Tommy has no respect for boundaries. A surprisingly well-read A-list Hollywood star, Tommys fallen in love with Staceys novel-in-verse, a feminist reimagining of Frankenstein, no less. His passion for the book, and eventually its author, will set their lives on a collision course. Theyll make a movie, make each other crazy, and make lovebut only in secret. As Stacey travels between her humdrum life in the suburbs of Omaha and the glamorous but fleeting escape Tommy offers, what begins as a distracting affair starts to pick up weight. Its a weight that unbalances Staceys already unsteady life, but offers new depth to Tommys. About desire, love, grief, parenthood, sexual politics, and gender, Monsters: A Love Story is a witty portrait of a relationship gone off the rails, and two people who are made for each othereven if theyre not so sure they see it that way.From the Hardcover edition.
