Little Stalker

( 13 )

Overview

Since she was thirteen, one of the few things New York novelist Rebekah Kettle has been able to count on is the thrill of seeing a new movie by world-renowned filmmaker Arthur Weeman every fall. Now thirty-three, the humor and poignancy of Weeman's singular movies have inextricably merged with her own memories—to the point that she has begun writing him letters under the guise of her thirteen-year-old self—and her teenage admiration has become fullblown obsession. So when Rebekah steps back and takes stock of her...

Overview

Since she was thirteen, one of the few things New York novelist Rebekah Kettle has been able to count on is the thrill of seeing a new movie by world-renowned filmmaker Arthur Weeman every fall. Now thirty-three, the humor and poignancy of Weeman's singular movies have inextricably merged with her own memories—to the point that she has begun writing him letters under the guise of her thirteen-year-old self—and her teenage admiration has become fullblown obsession. So when Rebekah steps back and takes stock of her own life, she isn't happy with what she finds: She's unlucky in love, hopelessly stalled in her work, and unable to get over the past.

It's time for Rebekah to take action. She starts a relationship with Isaac Myman, a quirky paparazzo with whom she's suspiciously compatible. And she befriends Mrs. Williams, an eccentric older woman who needs her companionship. It seems things are looking up. But, just as unexpectedly, Rebekah discovers that Mrs. Williams's apartment has the most coveted view on the Upper East Side—straight into Arthur Weeman's town house—where she can watch the object of her obsession's life displayed like a silent movie. Weeman has always been a fixture on the rumor mill, but Rebekah has been his staunchest defender—until she sees the evidence for herself and has to ask herself some questions. Does she give her new love a chance at the scoop of a lifetime—a photo of the compromised Weeman—or does she remain loyal to the man whose films have defined her life?

Riotously funny and astonishingly moving, Little Stalker is a bold, daring, twisted, and lovable novel that could have come only from a literary voice as sharp and original as Jennifer Belle's.

Editorial Reviews

New York Daily News
A light-hearted romp through New York' [is] precisely what Belle delivers. That it comes with a skewering as well makes it just that much more fun.
Cosmopolitan
Twisted and tender.
Hartford Courant
Deliciously sardonic.
Library Journal
There's lots of in-house enthusiasm for this first novel about a young woman who's shocked to discover that the movie director she's obsessed with isn't perfect. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Young novelist stalled after the early success of her first book becomes increasingly fixated on a famous filmmaker she has admired since childhood. For 33-year-old Rebekah Kettle, few things are as comforting as the annual release of an Arthur Weeman movie. A prolific New York writer/director/actor (yes, think Woody Allen), Weeman has always been there for her, dating back to her parents' divorce. So devoted is Rebekah that she spends $22,000 of her doctor father's money at an Arthur Weeman prop sale, taking home such useful items as a gondola and an oxygen tank. Feeling slightly guilty about using her preoccupied dad's money, which he has not yet discovered missing, she decides to pitch in at his medical practice after his assistant/mistress Irmabelle leaves. It is there she meets Mrs. Williams, a wheelchair-bound elderly woman suffering from what appears to be dementia. She also, it turns out, lives in the building facing Weeman's, with a view into his kitchen. Soon Rebekah is wheeling Mrs. Williams about, buying her diapers-and watching Weeman. Things get weirder when she starts writing to him in the guise of a pubescent girl named Thalia. Her unanswered letters are wildly imaginative wonders of provocation and innocence, and she notices Weeman starting to squire around an actual underage schoolgirl. For Rebekah, Weeman's inappropriate "relationship" is less troubling than the fact that her letters appear to have affected him. She soon realizes that she has found a subject for her second novel. Around this time, she meets her romantic match in Isaac Myman, an oddball tabloid photographer. As she and Isaac get closer, she feels torn: Exposing Weeman's secret could win Isaac a careerboost. In eccentric Rebekah, Belle (High Maintenance, 2001, etc.) has created another unforgettable narrator-funny, self-absorbed, a little damaged-and never predictable. Darkly comic journey touching on love, art and the nature of obsession.
From the Publisher
"Read with an engaging detachment by Renée Raudman, Rebekah's voice is, by turns, earnestly confiding and coolly distant, encouraging the listener to like her without really knowing why." —-AudioFile

    funny and quirky

    "Little Stalker" by Jennifer Belle is a funny story about an author's obsession with a has-been film maker. The quirkiness of the characters with the New York City setting makes it a very enjoyable read. There was enough humor to make me smile and enough things happening to keep me turning the page to read more. It's a good book to read on the beach. Enjoy it.

    This was a well-written hilarious read. The author definitely keeps you interested and laughing throughout the character's journey of self discovery. I bought this book on a Thursday afternoon and finished it that Saturday morning. Highly Recommend.
