About the Series: Famepunk
FAMEPUNK is the story of a fictional Brooklyn-born girl tennis prodigy with a sad secretive past and a great kick serve. Her triumphs and misadventures fuel a sexy, funny multi-volume book about love and competition, children and parents, the natural world and the art world, the Cold War and its aftermath, money, globalism, technology, women's bodies in the marketplace, women's bodies in the home, addiction, secrecy, hypocrisy, truth-telling--and tennis. This is a fan's novel, grounded in my love for the sport of tennis and its real-life players.
