    TURNAROUND By Craig Spector 212 Pages Cemetery Dance $35.00 B- T

    TURNAROUND By Craig Spector 212 Pages Cemetery Dance $35.00 B- This one’s a tale that wouldn’t have been out of place on any incarnation of The Twilight Zone, albeit a more-than-typically profane installment of that anthology series. The title is a reference to the maddening movie-industry phenomenon of the project that falls through a trap door into limbo and is abruptly removed from the plans of everybody with the purse-strings, regardless of how many versions of the screenplay have been painstakingly written, and revised, and revised again, by some unfortunate wordsmith trying to get to the magical version capable of getting the final result produced. Normally, screenwriters are supposed to be paid for that work, every step of the way. Some producers hold out for the magic buyable version, forcing the scribe deeper and deeper into the hole for a payday that continues to recede into the distant and imaginary future. This is the dilemma of Eric Best, a once-successful screenwriter whose career , finances and marriage are falling apart, and whose endless go-rounds on one script for a producer who keeps asking him for “one more change” have him waltzing the edge of despair…until he finds that he can actually enter his creation, and for short periods live a live like the ones in the movies, far more glamorous and successful than his own. Meanwhile, a love story with a very needy neighbor ensues. The lean prose is uneven in spots, but Best’s increasing desperation and the personal stakes of his Zoney miracle keep ratcheting up the tension throughout.
