About This Book
"A daring and beautiful meditation about selfishness and selflessness, and how to be in the world. A powerful book that will stay with me."
Innocents and others begins with a memoir of Meadow Mori recalling the affair with a much older man, a famous Hollywood actor Orson Welles. Then, the journey of two protagonists, Meadow and Carrie begins. This book is a stunning coming-of-age novel about two women, a precocious teenager Meadow Mori and an ordinary girl Carrie Wexler, becoming filmmakers in LA. Both share everything in common except their views on life, love, and movie-making. Spiotta unfolds the irony of life through the friendship of two filmmakers and raises questions on the unbridgeable gaps between fiction and truth, deception, and innocence, salvation, and atonement. Dana Spiotta is the author of Innocents and Others, a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, the St. Francis College Literary Prize, the National Book Critics Circle Award. Spiotta was a Guggenheim Fellow, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow, and the 2008 Rome Prize in Literature recipient. She was awarded the 2017 John Updike Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She lives in Syracuse and teaches in the Syracuse University MFA program.
