Plus_One_Christopher_NoxonHere are a sprinkling of the many enthusiastic comments about Plus One, a novel by Christopher Noxon, published by Pasadena’s Prospect Park Books:

“A page-turning peek into the world of TV and families and money, this is Hollywood L.A. as seen from a newcomer’s ambivalent perspective. I found it both fun and fascinating and unsettling to delve into this world, built convincingly by Noxon’s gift with scenes and voices.”
— Aimee Bender, author of The Color Master and The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Juicy, fun, and the ultimate ‘inside-baseball’ look at Hollywood, Plus One is rich with pitch-perfect details and social satire that sings. Christopher Noxon takes aim at showbiz insiders and outliers in this very funny novel and hits the target. You’ll laugh, you’ll cringe, and you’ll never look at a man on the red carpet holding a Judith Leiber bag in the same way. Read it by the cabaña… if you can afford one.
— Lian Dolan, author of Elizabeth the First Wife and Helen of Pasadena

Plus One is a smart and funny novel about Hollywood, but where it truly shines is in Noxon’s stunning and painfully accurate depiction of the complex rhythms and growing pains of a marriage.”
— Jonathan Tropper, author of This Is Where I Leave You and One Last Thing Before I Go 

“A brisk romp that’s sometimes laugh-out-loud funny as it deals with the serious issues of roles and communication in marriage. And just picture this on the big screen, with Jason Bateman as the lead.”

“The emotional and socio-demographic details are so rich and hilarious, it’s almost as if Christopher Noxon himself had some kind of incredibly successful Hollywood wife.”
— Joel Stein, Time columnist and author of Man Made

Christopher Noxon will sign books and discuss Plus One with Time columnist Joel Stein on Wednesday, Feb. 18th at 7 p.m., at Vroman’s Bookstore. 693 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena 91101. For more info, visit
