Eric Warberg went to Hollywood to make it big. For many years, he
was successful, until directing a few box office bombs made him
virtually unemployable. When an opportunity presents itself for a
return to his hometown of Memphis, to direct a small, independent
film, it is a return to his roots in more ways than one. Despite
the fact that he's greeted like a star, his homecoming is
bittersweet. The novel begins on the onset of filming of what is
temporarily called Memphis Movie. From day one, Eric feels stuck
and unable to find his creative spark. He is helped along by a
large cast of characters, some from his past and some from the
filmmaking industry, including his partner, Sandy, who wrote the
script for the movie. Their open relationship will be challenged by
Eric's return to his roots. Memphis Movie reads like a Robert
Altman film, with many story strands making up the rich tapestry.
The novel's central question: will Eric lose or find his soul in
Memphis, a town where soul has so many meanings?
