Amy Sohn's new novel The Actress, published by Simon & Schuster, is being touted as the beach-read of the summer, and "an addictive saga of love, lust, fame, and friendship..." (Elisa Albert). It follows ambitious, young actress Maddy Freed as she gets her big break in the movie business, falls in love with Hollywood's most eligible bachelor and learns the hard truth about fame, ambition, self-worth, and the fairy-tale illusions of a celebrity marriage.
Amy Sohn is also the author of Prospect Park West, Motherland, Run Catch Kiss, My Old Man and has written for the New York Times, New York Magazine, the New York Post, Slate, Details, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Men’s Journal and Playboy.
Tune in to hear why Amy feels like an outsider, what happened when she took on the "mom establishment" and how talent can be the biggest aphrodisiac.
