A Review With Nora Zelevansky



MY NAME IS: Nora Zelevansky (the editorial director of Live The Process).

MY BOOK IS CALLED:

Will You Won’t You Want Me?.

THE PUBLICATION DATE IS:

April 19th, 2016 (today!) with St. Martin’s Press.

I WAS INSPIRED TO WRITE IT WHEN:

I started thinking about how coming-of-age isn’t only a childhood experience. We’re all constantly trying to evolve with grace, as our identities change.

IT'S ABOUT:

A 28-year-old woman named Marjorie Plum, who peaked in high school and can’t get a handle on adulthood. When her world gets turned upside down and her old friends drop away with her old life, she finds solace with a new musician roommate who looks like a pixie and talks like the Dalai Lama, and an 11-year-old tutee who acts as the Ghost of Marjorie Past. (A mindfulness practice helps too!) The return of a questionable childhood crush and the appearance of a grouchy, but intriguing new boss further complicate the equation, as Marjorie struggles with the ultimate question: Who does she want to be?

MY HOPE IS THAT READERS WILL:

Find the novel breezy, funny and relatable. A perfect way to ring in the spring!

MY NEXT BOOK MIGHT BE:

First person. And about a boy. Or not?

THE TITLE OF MY AUTOBIOGRAPHY WOULD BE:

Have You Seen My Keys? . . . and other short stories.

IF I WAS A CHARACTER FROM FICTION, I'D BE:

Elizabeth Bennet (at least I’d like to be!).
