With her characteristic wit, unsparing eye for detail, and famously frank opinions on gender issues, Juska, author of the best-selling memoir A Round-Heeled Woman, talks sex, the ups and downs of body parts well below the neck, and the indomitable human need for connection, whatever a woman's age.

    Frannie Rosen's psychic mentions a brilliant future, but she never tells the relatively straight-laced and naive Frannie that she will be possessed by a promiscuous, stage-struck doppelganger. All Frannie wants is an Oscar-winning role, a “to die for” role. What she gets is far more than that, especially when she's cast in a horror film about a demonic possession, directed by the legendary Victor Madison. While being piloted by Madison, Frannie is also orchestrated by a doppelganger/demon.
