Yes, I do mean that Molly Ringwald – the actress possibly most well known for her parts in various 80s classics (what is better than Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club? Not much.). In her debut novel (she does also have a self-help book), Ringwald explores the effects of betrayal, loss and love through a series of short stories that are connected to tell one story in its entirety.
“Ringwald’s storytelling succeeds as much on the page as her acting has done on screen. I look forward to her next literary performance.” - Lisa Bonos, The Washington Post
“It’s a multivoiced look — connecting stories that take the form of a novel — into the private lives of women, framed around one year in a teetering marriage.” – Carolyn Kellogg, The Los Angeles Times
