The hilarious tale of a newly full-time dad and awards-show “plus one” whose TV-writer wife has hit the big time
Christopher Noxon’s debut novel Plus One is a comedic take on breadwinning women and caretaking men in contemporary Los Angeles. Alex Sherman-Zicklin is a mid-level marketing executive whose wife’s fourteenth attempt at a television pilot is produced, ordered to series, and awarded an Emmy. Overnight, she’s sucked into a mad show-business vortex and he’s tasked with managing their new high-profile Hollywood lifestyle. He falls in with a posse of Plus Ones, men who are married to women whose success, income, and public recognition far surpasses their own. What will it take for him to regain the foreground in his own life?
“Well observed, honest, and laugh-out-loud funny, Plus One tells a story from the inside of show business about being on the outside.”—Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men
