Description: "Dedication," is a modern love story in which Henry Roth, a misanthropic, emotionally complex author of a hit children's book series, is forced to team with a beautiful illustrator after his best friend and creative collaborator passes away. Henry is messed up. A New York children's book author who tells kids that Santa doesn't exist, he hates sleeping with--and next to--anyone, including his girlfriend and must lay on the floor, usually with heavy objects on top of him just to feel safe. His motto is "Life is nothing but the occasional burst of laughter rising above the interminable wail of grief." As Henry struggles with letting go of the ghosts of love and life, he discovers that sometimes you have to take a gamble at life to find love.
