The Sex Life of the Amoeba
• By (author): Barry Healey Canada
This is a novel about passions – a passion for movies, a passion for sex, and a passion for one’s country.
Sarah Fielding wants to turn the great Canadian novel into a “quality” movie but everyone else (the sex-mad producer, the psycho Hollywood star and the avaricious distributor) has their own idea of what it should be.
Will Sarah pull it together? Not likely.
