about the book

Publication date: October 1, 2022

reminiscence of sex and the city satisfies The perks of Being a Wallflower, Patricia Levy blue film is a captivating and inspiring story about the pursuit of dreams and what it really means to live a “big” life.

A couple of years out of college, Tash Daniels has put her love of film on the backburner. She works in retail stores, goes from club to club, and manages to pay her rent. Usually attracted to the wrong guy, she feels lost when she finally falls for the right one. Sexy disc jockey Aidan is living her life authentically as an artist and encourages her to do the same. Will she open her heart? Will she bet on herself and her dreams? Is a girl with a dream really alone in the world? Tash’s friends join him on the trip: Jason Woo, bubbly model on the rise; Penelope Waters, serious graduate student with a secret no one suspects; Lu K, fiercely independent hot girl disc jockey; and Monroe Preston, the glamorous wife of a Hollywood studio manager. Often bathed in the glitter of the silver screen, the characters show us how the arts can rekindle the light within, pushing us to confront our fears so we can choose how to live in the present. Film Blue is a novel about following our passions, the hidden side of our dreams, the power of art, what it really means to live a “big” life, and finding the people to join us on our journey. A tribute to 1980s pop culture against the backdrop of contemporary New York and Los Angeles, Film Blue celebrates how the art we experience and create can shape our stories, frame by frame.
