The Violet Hour is a Jazz-Age fantasy about fate, ambition, and loyalty. It concerns the mysteries of time and destiny in the thought-provoking ways that have made Greenberg (Take Me Out) a celebrated master.
Fledgling publisher John Pace Seavering has staked his future on his next book. But which writer will he choose? As he struggles between the work of his Josephine Baker-like lover and that of his best friend, a gifted writer à la F. Scott Fitzgerald, a mysterious printing machine arrives and hilariously complicates his dilemma and pokes fun at his futile efforts to control the future. A magical, haunting and inspirational story about the choices we make, the accidents that happen, and that moment, the violet hour, in which it is impossible to tell the difference.
