An entertainer gets into serious trouble & strives to recover. Decades later, actors stage a play about him.
Bosworth Hooper is a fictional entertainer – a stage magician, stand-up comic, songwriter – who lived in the mid-19th century and got into serious trouble after ambition led him to stray from his vocation. “Brief Lives” answers the question, “Can Hooper hold together the family he loves and recover his standing in the public eye?”
At the same time, this novel reveals how a theater company in the mid-20th century goes about putting on a play based on the story of Hooper and his wife Grace.
“Brief Lives” proceeds in an unconventional way – with 49 short chapters featuring people involved in this production or interested in it and also two novella-length interludes that explore the story of Hooper and Grace from different angles.
