    You or Someone Like You
    You or Someone Like You
    Anne is the quiet, clever but generally overlooked wife of a powerful Hollywood producer. Inadvertently, and somewhat to her own surprise, Anne starts a book group for a small group of her husband's colleagues in the movie industry. Like a modern - day Scheherazade, Anne tells the book group stories - about books, writers and reading - and talks about how these stories can shape our lives. The movie moguls fall hard for literature, and like topsy, the book group grows and grows, in size and numbers and influence, until something unexpected and terrible happens, and Anne finds her life and her marriage falling apart. Determined to keep her family - her husband Howard and their much - loved only son, Sam - together, Anne fights back the only way she knows how, through literature. Assured, clever, witty and tender, You Or Someone Like You is a novel about books, identity and love.'You Or Someone Like You is a pitch - perfect, often very funny novel about why, in this crazy world, we still bother to read. It's for anyone who defiantly clings to the belief that a book can change our lives.' - David Ebershoff, author of The 19th Wife and The Danish Girl
