Pg. 69: Diane Haithman's "Dark Lady of Hollywood"

Featured at the Page 69 Test: Dark Lady of Hollywood by Diane Haithman.

About the book, from the publisher:
Told through the eyes of TV exec Ken Harrison and the gorgeous Ophelia Lomond, a breathtakingly bad biracial actress whom Ken comes to believe is Hollywood’s answer to Shakespeare’s Dark Lady of the Sonnets, Dark Lady has received rave reviews. Ken Harrison, 36, Vice President of Comedy Development at a Big Three network, was right in the middle of TV’s most desirable demographic: men 18-49. Then misfortune enters stage left, and Ken’s comfortable world is suddenly fraught with shadows and uncertainty.

Ousted from the network’s comedy department, Ken finds solace in his unread, undergrad’s copy of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare — and discovers Shakespeare’s mysterious Dark Lady of the Sonnets, a 16th century enigma whose identity has baffled scholars for centuries.
