Entertaining Welsey Shaw - A Novel
A page-turning comedy-drama that's something of a cross between Notting Hill and Roman Holiday, Entertaining Welsey Shaw is the debut novel of John Grabowski, a former newswriter and copywriter who's met his share of celebrities.
Imagine the most famous and elusive movie star in the world secretly meets with you--an ordinary guy--once a week, and proceeds to make you her confidant, her best friend. She finds you a breath of fresh air, as she learns about the real world she rarely sees. You, naturally, find her utterly fascinating and thrilling. How could you not? She wealthy and famous, her life is one to envy--Or is it?
Paparazzi, stalkers, "friends" with ulterior motives--these are the people who make up her world. And now, as your relationship grows, you have a front row seat to the circus. It's both more exciting and more dangerous than anything you ever imagined.
Entertaining Welsey Shaw is about feeling frenzied in this age of social-everything. It deals with fame and fortune, the road not taken, and the eternal search for happiness, all over steamy lattes and cappuccinos in Midtown Manhattan. Entertaining Welsey Shaw is about two types of people who normally never meet--and what happens after they do.
