Amy Falls Down, by Jincy Willett

Find in catalogAmy is an aging novelist who hasn’t published anything in years. She spends her time teaching writing courses and generally hiding out from life. One morning she falls and hits her head, right before a scheduled interview with a journalist. In her concussed state, she comes off just witty and quirky enough to spark interest in her long ago writing career. Suddenly she is a hot commodity on the writer’s circuit, giving interviews on NPR. Most importantly, she starts writing again, and finally starts living again. This is a very funny, intelligent book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The audio version is a real gem.
