REVIEWED BY RENNIE DYBALL

FICTION

What’s it like to marry a star? Leary, wife of Denis, spins her inside knowledge into a sparkling debut novel. When Joe, Julia’s actor husband, goes A-list, Julia finds herself on the sidelines—and stalking Joe when she suspects infidelity. Keenly observant of celeb culture (“It never ceased to embarrass me the way Joe wore his sunglasses indoors”), Leary pens a bittersweet tale about love, marriage and the perils of fame.
