TAKE POST-SHOW SURVEY

New York City novelist Kevin Taylor is in a rut. With two successful books to his name and a much-anticipated third book overdue, he has lost his way – and he has lost his marriage as well. After a very public meltdown on TV, he resigns himself to life as a bachelor – until an enthusiastic teenage super fan arrives on his doorstep offering to be his intern. Before long, this imaginative new employee hatches a very creative scheme to reunite Kevin with his wife in a hilarious, heartfelt story about finding unlikely friendship in unexpected places.
