From the precocious adolescent seducing Father Dauphinais while confessing her sins, to the legendary L.A. photographer touring the environs of the Hotel Paradiso with Henry L. Mencken, Zoe's account is one woman's erotic and spiritual journey through the last half of the 20th century, as she interacts with celebrities and public figures in movies, business and politics. A woman of beauty, intellect and talent, she fiercely pursues a life-long quest for an answer to the question, "Who am I?" and discovers that the answer is not so much a matter of who, but why.

About the Author
James Cortese grew up in Massachusetts, earned a Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin, settled for a time in Ohio and Silicon Valley, and now lives in Houston. He is the author of an award-winning book of fables called "What the Owl Said," as well as many published short stories and articles on film--his other passion besides writing and computers. He has worked as a college professor, short-order cook, book editor, operating room orderly, professional student, librarian, and executive speechwriter for high-tech companies that had an annoying habit of going out of business. As a young child, his dream was to be a firefighter. Later, once he learned to read and write, he realized his true vocation wasn't putting out fires but starting them.
