Publisher's Summary

A haunting and provocative debut novel about the stratospheric rise of an enigmatic Hollywood star and her legacy in the vein of Daisy Jones and the Six, from Columbia MFA graduate Dan Bevacqua.

Molly Bit doesn’t believe she’s destined for success - she knows it.

This certainly helps her get through the countless auditions featuring actors who look and dress just like she does; helps her swallow the indignity of less-talented actors landing roles; even helps her endure the industry’s aggressive over-sexualizing of young women.

When Molly is offered a lead role in a major film, she knows, too, that to seize this opportunity, she must sacrifice everything. Even her commitment to an old friend.

It’s her big break, and Molly becomes a star. But she soon learns the hardest part of fame is everything after.

Molly Bit begins as a portrait of the artist as a young woman and transforms into an ode to the strange, personal magic of movie-making, and our obsession - public and private - with performance. In Molly Bit, Dan Bevacqua announces himself as a force of wit and insight with his profound reflections on celebrity, beauty, violence, and the power of art.
