The Ingenue

Narrator: Sarah is the Chinese American assistant film producer and unofficial ghost writer for Xander, a movie director.

Jason is a well-known actor.

I was also the person who knew the script backwards and forwards, when each character was needed in each scene, how each narrative twist led to the next one. So I sat there quietly, soaking in this vicarious praise.

“Amazing script, can’t wait to get started,” Jason shouted. He turned to me in a lowered voice. “Hey, can you get me a glass of sparkling water before we start?”

Complicit, p. 214
