A campy soap opera from Justin McShane, the author of "Don't Leave Me This Way"
A famous novelist hooked on booze and pills; an insane ex-movie star desperate for money; a TV actress with an obsession; a magazine editor who wants to rule the world; and a young man on a journey of self-discovery. These are the people you will meet in "The Ones You Leave Behind".
Uptight, conservative, 20-year-old Jamie Colt returns home to New York City for Christmas in 1974. His mother is Jackie St. Jacques--a larger than life novelist notorious for her trashy books. When Jamie realizes he is gay, he enters a strange and exciting new world that offers a career, friends, romance, and more drama than he bargained for.
