Amy Falls Down

About the Book

Amy Falls Down

The endearingly bitter writer, Amy Gallup has happily isolated herself from the world spending the last two decades teaching and reviewing --- she’s done a lot of thinking, but very little writing. On an unassuming morning, in her slippers, Amy trips in her backyard, goes head-over-heels and into the side of a birdbath. The hospital clears her of head injury—so Amy returns home. When a local reporter shows up for a scheduled interview, Amy is not quite herself.

The article paints Amy as a the zen-goddess of writing, publishing...and life. Her bizarre interview was interpreted as the rambling of a true genius. But all that really happened was: Amy fell down!

The next thing she knows, friends and fans are coming out of the woodwork. Suddenly Amy is on radio shows, keynoting a major publishing event, and guiding a local writers’ retreat.  But the strangest thing of all: Amy starts to write.

Readers witness Amy confront her past and present, and choose to take down the walls she so carefully wrote up around her.  AMY FALLS DOWN  is a novel both surprisingly heartwarming and a witty mirror into today's publishing world --- as only Jincy Willett could write.

A scathingly funny and wickedly humorous roman-a-clef by one of our most acclaimed literary humorists --- about a bitterly uninspired writer who decides to change her life after a freak accident.
