Summary
Unabridged. A cracklingly funny and poignant debut novel about the ways we love, even when we're not at our best Stacey Lane feels like a monster. Tommy DeMarco is one. Since her husband died eight months ago, Stacey's been a certified mess--a poet who can't write anymore, a good mother who feels like she's failing her kids. She's been trying to redefine herself, to find new boundaries.Tommy has no respect for boundaries. A surprisingly well-read, A-list Hollywood star, Tommy's fallen in love with Stacey's novel-in-verse--a feminist reimagining of Frankenstein, no less. His passion for the book, and eventually its author, will set their lives on a collision course. They'll make a movie, make each other crazy, and make love--but only in secret. And all with a vodka--or wine, or scotch--in hand. As Stacey travels between her humdrum life in the suburbs of Omaha and the glamorous but fleeting escape Tommy provides, what begins as a distracting affair starts to pick up weight. It's a weight that unbalances Stacey's already unsteady life but offers new depth to Tommy's. About desire, love, grief, parenthood, sexual politics, and gender, Monsters: a love story is a witty portrait of a relationship gone off the rails, and two people that are made for each other--even if they're not so sure they see it that way
