Be Here Now

By Deborah Laufer

A romantic comedy, Deborah Laufer’s Be Here Now, is the story of two damaged souls asking themselves how much they're willing to risk for love and meaning.

SYNOPSIS (from: http://www.deborahzoelaufer.com/):

Bari’s always been a bit of an angry, depressed misanthrope. And losing her job teaching nihilism in New York to work at the local fulfillment center in her rural hometown has sent her into despair. 

But lately her recurring headaches manifest bizarre, ecstatic, almost religious experiences, and they’re changing her entire view of life. 

She’s in love! She’s almost… happy! 

When she finds out they’re also killing her, she must decide whether it’s better to live a short, joyful life, or risk a lifetime of misery. 

And she must also ask herself… what’s it all for anyway?
