內容簡介

媲美《深夜小狗神秘習題》與《冏媽的極地任務》的初試啼聲之作!

被暱稱為"咪咪"(Mimi) 的M. M. Banning是個文學傳奇,19歲完成了生平第一部也是唯一的一部小說,獲得了普立茲與國家圖書獎,她靠著每年銷售百萬冊的豐厚版稅,隱居在加州Bel Air 的別墅裡,從此不再創作。但是因為成為非法吸金的老鼠會下的受害者,Mimi一夕之間破產了,她不得不在25年後重出江湖,因為她必須再寫一本書,以維持生計。

紐約的出版商派了個助理Alice飛到加州去盯著Mimi寫作,她既不是常春藤名校的畢業生,也不主修英語,但是她會開車、煮飯、愛乾淨、電腦打得飛快、和孩子相處融洽,而且安靜、不顯眼並且講道理,這些都是Mimi開出的條件,Alice活脫脫就是女傭與保母的角色。Alice上工後,成了Mimi 9歲大的兒子Frank的全職保母,這個孩子有點怪,是個影癡,所有老電影如數家珍,還會扮演電影中讓人難以忘懷的角色。在與Frank的相處中,Alice越來越好奇,他的父親是誰?是那個長得帥,來無影去無蹤的鋼琴教師Xander嗎?她更好奇的是,Mimi到底會不會完成她的第二部作品?


A sparkling debut combining the charming pluck of Eloise, the poignant psychological quirks of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and the page-turning spirit of Where d You Go, Bernadette.

Reclusive literary legend M. M. Mimi Banning has been holed up in her Bel Air mansion for years, but now she s writing her first book in decades and to ensure timely completion her publisher sends an assistant to monitor her progress.

When Alice Whitley arrives she s put to work as a companion to Frank, the writer s eccentric son, who has the wit of Noel Coward, the wardrobe of a 1930s movie star, and very little in common with his fellow fourth-graders. The longer she spends with the Bannings, the more Alice becomes obsessed with two questions: Who is Frank s father? And will Mimi ever finish that book?

Full of countless only-in-Hollywood moments, Be Frank With Me is a heartwarming story of a mother and son, and the intrepid young woman who is pulled into their unforgettable world.

Julia Claiborne Johnson has struck gold in creating Frank Banning a one-of-a-kind exasperating, witty, and endearing nine-year-old genius who functions as the beating heart of this marvelous book. Julie Schumacher, author of Dear Committee Members"
