Overview

Trisha Portman almost has it all. With her good looks, a job at a hot SoHo art gallery, devoted friends, and a handsome lawyer boyfriend, she's one step away from making it big. When a mysterious painting shows up at her gallery, Trisha's ticket to the top may have just arrived. Far from leading her there, however, the painting takes her back to her college days and to James Morales, a man whose artistic brilliance is exceeded only by the lengths he'll go to alienate people. As Trisha steps into James's tormented life, she discovers an unlikely soul mate but soon falls prey to a horrible misfortune. Called "Sex and the City with a heart" by Oprah author Jacquelyn Mitchard, Enter Sandman explores the tyranny of the superficial, the power of friendship, and the mystery of what people choose to leave behind.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Enter Sandman starts out like chick lit, but as in The Bell Jar, after making you squirm for the protagonist, it whacks you with a sucker punch of tragedy.... Destined for a long life in print. — Don Wallace

What People are saying about this

Jaquelyn Mitchard
From the author of The Deep End of the Ocean and Twelve Times Blessed:
"If Sex and the City had a heart, as well as a grin and an attitude, it would be Enter Sandman, written by Stephanie Williams. This is a funny and tragic and game book by a game and accomplished girl. Correction: A game and funny and tragic story written with style by a woman in full."
Betsy Carter
From the author of Nothing to Fall Back On:
"In the spirit of Breakfast at Tiffany's, the heroine of Stephanie Williams's charming and unflinching novel, Enter Sandman, comes to New York looking for fortune, romance, and fulfillment. Trisha Portman has it all: blonde hair, great looks, and a job at the hottest art gallery in town. One day, a piece of luck as big as the Ritz, falls into her lap in the form of a violent and riveting painting. The history of the painting takes us through Trisha's surprising past and edgy present. With deft and graceful strokes, Stephanie Williams has created a rip-roaring read told with compassion, irony, and a flair for the truth."
Sara Nelson
From the author of So Many Books, So Little Time:
"Enter Sandman is nothing you'd expect -- particularly if you expect a book by a young woman dying of cancer to be depressing or preachy. Stephanie Williams is a young woman with cancer, but the book she's written is funny, feisty, and full of a kind of spirit we would all do well to imitate. Read this and weep, yes, but also laugh and admire. Most of all, just read it."
