COMEDY. When four authors meet at the country home of a reclusive heiress to compete for a $100,000 grant, it becomes painfully clear that it’s going to be tough choice—that is to find an author worthy of the money! There’s Roscoe Drake, a writer of booze, broads, and tough-guy detective fiction; Charlotte Ascot, a writer of wine-sipping, candle-lighting, moon-gazing romance novels; T.Y. Myers, writer of cold corpse-laden murder-mysteries; and Wallace Crandall, whose high-brow literary work about an ineffable, alienated heron leaves everyone speechless. But in the end, it could be the writers’ real lives that prove stranger than their fiction.
