True Enough : Jane Cody imagined she would lead a tumultuous life, full of money, passion, and painless tragedies. Instead, she wakes up at forty with a doting second husband, a precocious son who loves to bake, and a fast-paced job as a producer for a Boston television station. What went wrong? In New York, Desmond Sullivan - biographer of demi-celebrities such as the forgotten torch singer Pauline Anderton - wonders how he ended up "stuck in something as pathetic" as a happy, secretly monogamous relationship with smart, sweet Russell. Jane and Desmond meet in Boston and join forces to create a series of TV documentaries on America's cultural mediocrities. But their search for the truth about the elusive Anderton takes them on a journey of self-discovery in which they learn more about their own secrets and lies than they ever wanted to know.
