Be Frank With Me
Julia Claiborne Johnson’s debut novel tells the story of M.M. Banning, a reclusive and eccentric American award winning author, and her equally eccentric nine-year old son Frank. Ms. Banning’s only novel, Pitched, made her a literary superstar and a comfortable living for 30 years. Now, Mimi, as she is known by her few friends, is forced to write a second novel due to losing her fortune to an investment scam. Mimi’s publisher sends a young assistant to help her while she completes writing her new novel.
