A page-turning comedy-drama that's something of a cross between Notting Hill and Roman Holiday, Entertaining Welsey Shaw is the debut novel of John Grabowski, a former newswriter and copywriter who's met his share of celebrities.

Imagine that the most famous and elusive movie star in the world meets with you once a week in secret, and proceeds to make you her confidant, her best friend, her indispensable single person she can talk to. Surrounded by crazies, sycophants and manipulators, she finds you a breath of fresh air.

So you come together in this coffee shop in the heart of New York, week after week, with the understanding that it does not go any further than the four walls of a certain ordinary Starbucks on Manhattan's Park Avenue. Only of course it eventually does. She keeps relying you more and more and keep finding her increasingly fascinating. How could you not? She wealthy, she’s famous, her life is one of envy—Or is it?

Paparazzi, stalkers, and friends who can’t be trusted, these are the people make up her life. And now you have a front row seat into her world, a world that’s not what people on the “outside” think it is, one that’s both more exciting and darker than anything you considered.

Entertaining Welsey Shaw is about feeling disconnected in this age of social-everything. It deals with fame and loneliness in a way most people never think of it, and examines how much of our lives is just the result of divine luck. It deals with the road not taken, the cost of success, and how true conversation seems to be a vanishing art.

Entertaining Welsey Shaw is about two types of people who normally never meet—and what happens after they do.
