    At 23, Ruth Saunders headed west with her 70-year-old grandma in tow, hoping to be hired as a television writer. Four years later, she's hit the jackpot when she gets The Call: the sitcom she wrote, The Next Big Thing, has gotten the green light, and Ruthie's going to be the show-runner. But her dreams of Hollywood happiness are threatened by demanding actors, number-crunching executives, an unrequited crush on a boss, and her grandmother's impending nuptials.

    What made the experience of listening to The Next Best Thing the most enjoyable?

    It was very interesting to read from the prospective of a sitcom writer.


    What other book might you compare The Next Best Thing to and why?

    It is a very unique book, and that is one reason that I liked it. I really haven't read a book like it.


    What about Olivia Thirlby’s performance did you like?

    You could really see how the main character was feeling -


    Who was the most memorable character of The Next Best Thing and why?

    The grandmother...I loved the relationship between the two of them.

    On a seemingly ordinary Saturday in a California suburb, Julia and her family awake to discover, along with the rest of the world, that the rotation of the earth has suddenly begun to slow. The days and nights grow longer and longer, gravity is affected, the environment is thrown into disarray. Yet as she struggles to navigate an ever-shifting landscape, Julia is also coping with the normal disasters of everyday life.

    sad


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was really the story line...it really affected me.

    There were several moments...the piano teacher....the relationship with the boy...the relationship with the grandfather.
