A hack writer struggles to restart his career after a love affair turned frigid sends him into an alcoholic tailspin
Dan Larkin is a hack writer who has always found it easy to churn out scripts, empty bottles, and bed young women. But he meets his match in Allison - a natural blonde who can feel no pleasure. When the sting of unrequited love makes writing impossible, Dan goes into a tailspin that leaves him broke, fired from his job at a Hollywood studio, and on his way back to New York.
Then, between binging on women and rye, Dan gets an idea for the book that’s going to set him straight - assuming he’s ready for it.
