What’s the book about?

How does a smart woman who doesn’t own a strapless dress and hasn’t had a manicure since senior prom find love in New York City?  By going out on a Saturday night in sweatpants and a faded unicorn t-shirt, of course.  At least, this approach seems to work for Zoe Richards, queen of bad dates and a boring job, newly thirty, and determined to turn her life around without becoming a vapid dilettante in the process.

Haunted by The Dream (true love, familial bliss, and a kickass career), Zoe turns the big 3-0 facing its antithesis.  Her career?  Neverending document review on a toilet plunger patent case.  Familial bliss?  Try coming home alone every night to a studio that could hardly fit a Keebler elf.  And as for true love, that fabled nemesis of many a single woman, Zoe is a walking advertisement for why sperm banks might not be such a bad idea.

When serendipity throws Zoe into the path of Huck Gentry, dreamy star of the hit TV show Justice, Baby!, she must face all of her insecurities.  Can girls with big noses who are in no danger of falling prey to anorexia win the heart of a guy like Huck? Of Love, Actors, and Acrobats is a hilarious look at what happens when you dare to be yourself and take a chance on love.  For any woman who has ever dreamed of changing her life or ever struggled with why things just don’t seem to come together, Zoe’s antics provide an opportunity to laugh at ourselves and think about some of the crazy double standards women today face in pursuit of the perfect life.
