Mercury Pictures Presents by Anthony Marra

The epic tale of a brilliant woman who must reinvent herself to survive,
moving from Mussolini's Italy to 1940s Los Angeles—a timeless story of love, deceit,
and sacrifice from the award-winning, 
New York Times bestselling author of 
A Constellation of Vital Phenomena.

“Crackling with wit and suffused with insight, Mercury Pictures Presents explores the endless give-and-take between life and art, the cost of integrity, and the ways we must make peace with the past in order to move forward toward the future. . . . A genuinely moving and life-affirming novel that’s a true joy to read.”
—Celeste Ng, author of Little Fires Everywher
