Introducing the Author
GEORGIE MCCOOL IS A DRIVEN SCREENWRITER WHO GETS the opportunity of a lifetime. An idea that she and her best friend, Seth, pitch for a TV series is chosen and they must write nine episodes for the pilot with a tight deadline. It was what the two friends-since-college had been waiting for since they began working together on their university’s school paper called, The Spoon. There is only one glitch. It’s the holidays and Georgie is set to leave with her husband, Neal, and two kids to celebrate Christmas with his family in Nebraska.
Not wanting to let go of a lifelong dream, Georgie decides to work on the new scripts only to find out that her husband decides to go ahead and take the two kids to Nebraska to spend the holidays with his mom. Dumbfounded, Georgie becomes unsettled and begins re-evaluating her marriage of the past 15 years. Though hesitant to admit it, Georgie soon realizes that she is in fact, having problems in her marriage and it is all because of decisions she has made over the years. Trying to get in touch with Neal to explain herself, she finds her husband ignoring her calls. As she ponders on her marriage and its seemingly-near dissolution, Georgie gets a chance of a lifetime – she discovers she is able to speak to a 22-year-old version of Neal, via an old rotary ‘phone she finds in her room in her mother’s house. Their conversations lead Georgie to face her old issues and make a decision about their relationship that can change both of their lives forever.
Rainbow Rowell’s second adult fiction, is a story of a marriage on the rocks and the perpetual debate on whether women, or anyone for that matter, can really juggle a career and home life and have everything both ways. Rowell’s realistic storytelling of how couples can change throughout the years will resonate with anyone who has ever wondered if it is really worth it to get married and leave everything else behind. Georgie’s lifelong dream is just within her reach and she has to decide if she is ready to let it go to save her crumbling marriage?
A story of love and loss, family over career, romantic love versus friendship, Landline is another work that showcases Rowell’s ability to weave a gripping story with the simplest of words and the truest of emotions.
