Hollywood con man
To escape an abusive relationship is not necessarily to find personal Liberty. But for Anne Delaney, the protagonist of Lois Schwarz's contemporary novel Hollywood Con Man, this realization takes almost too long to discover. An unloved and abused child, Anne begins her quest for freedom when she first encounters affection at the age of six. Her methods for finding freedom, however, are merely escape tactics. When she is seventeen, married and pregnant, she leaves her hometown of Bridgeport, Connecticut for Hollywood, California. Rather than finding happiness and liberty there, she in only further abused by her controlling husband, who succumbs to the perfidious Hollywood addictions to sex and drugs. Anne, already accustomed to accepting physical abuse, soon learns also to endure emotional and sexual abuse. It is not until she realizes all that her husband killed within her that Anne stands up for herself. This is one woman's story not only of escape, but also of freedom and it's implications in her life.
