This anomalous American saga takes off when Alexandra
Bradford unexpectedly meets Brian Levin in Hollywood at a
screen test for the movie based on her book, Kiss of Life.
Attracted to each other almost instantly, the scene is set for a
tempestuous romance. She is a successful black novelist,
divorced, mature and beautiful, while he is white and Jewish,
divorced, charismatically handsome and famous on the popular
Alexandra and Brian not only have to come to grips with their
new, highly publicized relationship, but also with the challenges
brought forth by their racial and religious differences—a feat
which, even in modern America, can still be problematic despite
the country's vast multicultural and multiracial diversity. This
moving account chronicles their journey across the United States
from California to Florida as Alexandra struggles to reconcile
her devastating past with her desire to be with Brian, and as he
attempts to cope with his longing for her love and his obscure
anxiety. Ultimately, the intensity of their passion soars to an
emotional climax in a boundlessly searing culmination."
