Girls in Ice Houses
by Linda Morganstein
Maxie Wolfe is on track to becoming the most notorious female paparazzo of all time, a dubious goal that reflects her flight from the past. One scorching summer night, outside the Bad Mama Supper Club on Sunset Boulevard, Maxie scuffles with Fisher Jacobs, a celebrity female sports agent. They're both arrested and sentenced to anger-management classes. Things go from bad to worse for the pair in Hollywood, until they flee to Fisher's family in Minnesota.
In the heartland, Maxie begins to bond with the Jacobs family and to use her suppressed talent to take photos that aren't ugly celebrity exposes. While in Minnesota, she begins to uncover secrets about the Jacobs family. Secrets that could destroy them.
Girls in Ice Houses is a thoughtful yet humorous exploration of complex family dynamics, the nature of art and creativity, and the relationship of comedy and tragedy in a tentative world.
