Overview

Deliciously candid, wickedly funny, and heart-tuggingly true, Stephanie Lehmann's Are You In The Mood? is the perfect read for anyone who's ever wondered when her real life will show up�

Give my regards to Broadway�please?

The moment Camille Ciarelli gets a rave review in The New York Times for her performance in an Off-Off Broadway show, she's certain it's her ticket to the big time-fame, fortune, maybe even a chance at sexy director Eric Hughes's next play. Instead, the show tanks. Her agent comes on to her, then drops her. And suddenly Camille's career is about as hot as Pia Zadora's. At least there's sweet, reliable Daniel, her psychiatrist boyfriend. All he wants is to marry her and start a family. And one accident later, it's goodbye Camille, exciting new actress. Hello Mrs. Kressler, food-stained new mommy and wife.

Anyone who can pull this off deserves more than a Tony�

Suddenly, Camille finds herself navigating a surreal, Upper East Side swirl of saccharin-sweet mommy-and-me classes, nannies with indecipherable accents, and women who can't seem to stop chirping about how "fulfilled" they are. And sex? How about zero interest. Nada. Would rather watch "Larry King Live." Twice. Then, while apartment hunting, Camille runs into the charming Eric Hughes himself. It can't hurt to pretend to be interested in his stunning apartment. Or to be single. And childless. And available for an audition. Can it?

It's not "lying," it's acting�

Now, Camille is playing the role of her life-pretending to be two vastly different women on two completely different stages, and having a ball�as long as she can keep up the fa�ade. But is she willing to risk everything she has for something she wants? And if life isn't a dress rehearsal, how do you ever get enough practice for the real thing?
