Lucy Faas was lonely, though she didn’t realize it before coming to stay at Alexander Murphy’s Montecito home. She just thought she was leaving her suburban hermitage for a fresh place where she could work on the comeback for her abandoned music career--she never expected to open up about the attack whose songwriting therapy propelled her into a music career, or that she would be joining an assemblage of celebrities hiding from a bored populace who would include her in their eccentric family; nor that she would be the one to solve the mystery of the home's enigmatic host; and it was absolutely unthinkable that she would fall in love, and then learn the secret that could bring this celebrity halfway house to a shameful end. And no one expected lurking Doom would soon be climbing over the wall.
Incorporating Lucy’s songwriting, architecture-themed articles, and sections of pure dramatic dialogue into its seriocomic narrative, and with a cast of celebrities alternately inspired and imagined, Alexander Murphy’s Home for Wayward Celebrities is a literary novel that explores modern celebrity, ambition, and the creative process with style, humor, and heart.
