“This of-the-moment story follows Grace Turner, a young Hollywood actress who disappeared at the height of her fame for an entire year, and her return to life in LA…Full of dark secrets and suspense, this darkly funny tale is full of empowerment, courage and vengeance.″—CNN
“This beautifully written and compulsively readable book broke me from my pandemic blockage. It is the perfect summer read.”—Jenna Bush Hager
Grace Turner was one movie away from Hollywood’s A-List. So no one understood why, at the height of her career and on the eve of her first Golden Globe nomination, she disappeared.
Now, one year later, Grace is back in Los Angeles and determined to reclaim her life on her own terms.
So when Grace is asked to present a lifetime achievement award to director Able Yorke—the man who controlled her every move for eight years—she knows there’s only one way she’ll be free of the secret that’s already taken so much from her.
The Comeback is a powerful and provocative story of justice in the #MeToo era—a true page-turner about a young woman finding the strength and power of her voice.
“Raw and nuanced, The Comeback slices straight down to the nerve. A chilling exposé unfolding in real time—I dare anyone to read it without squirming in suspense and in recognition.”
—Chandler Baker, New York Times bestselling author of Whisper Network (Reese's Book Club)
“Ella Berman has created a timely, darkly glittering novel – a subtle and sensitively-drawn portrait of a young woman coming to terms with the force and power of her anger, and her need for revenge…It's gripping, witty, and deeply satisfying – the kind of book you lose sleep over, and cancel plans for.”
—Katie Lowe, author of The Furies
