Synopsis

Before her ambiguous disappearance in 2016, internationally respected poet and novelist Maya Dardel lived in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California. She had recently announced on National Public Radio that she intended to end her life and that young male writers could compete to become the executor of her estate. When hopeful young men begin showing up, they find themselves challenged intellectually, emotionally, erotically, until one of them begins to fathom Maya's end game.
