Plus One is a funny novel about an interfaith family set in contemporary Los Angeles. Alex Sherman – Zicklin is a midlevel marketing executive raised in the hippie mountain hamlet of Ojai, whose wife Figgy’s fourteenth TV pilot becomes a huge Emmy – winning hit. Overnight, he’s sucked into a mad show business vortex, quitting his job to become the family’s “domestic first responder.” Along the way, Alex must negotiate the demands of his Jewish in – laws and his own mystic – folksinging mother. Plus One tells the story of a caretaking support goy, his breadwinning Jewish wife, and the fast – changing roles of parents and partners.
