The Last Book Party

Okay so of course I was intrigued by this one – books, summer, Cape Cod? It sounded right up my alley and it was set in the eighties in Truro, where my family vacationed when I was young! Eve (formerly a secretary for a publishing house) leaves New York and moves into her parents’ summer house in Truro where she takes a job working as a summer assistant for a prestigious author. She’s immersed into a world she’d always dreamed about (Truro’s creative elite) and all sorts of chaos ensues. I don’t want to give too much away but everything sort of explodes and falls apart – it’s an epic catastrophe. For that reason, I could see this translating very well to film. I really enjoyed this but it was a little bit slow for me.
