Marisha Pessl's bestselling debut novel, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, won the John Sargent Sr. First Novel Prize (now the Center for Fiction's Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize), and was selected as one of the 10 Best Books of the Year by The New York Times Book Review. Pessl grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, and currently resides in New York City.

In Night Film, Pessl's second novel, beautiful, young Ashley Cordova is found dead in an abandoned warehouse in lower Manhattan.  Though her death is ruled a suicide, veteran and fallen-from-grace journalist Scott McGrath suspects otherwise.  As he probes the strange circumstances surrounding Ashley’s life and death, McGrath comes face-to-face with the legacy of her father: the legendary, reclusive, cult-horror-film director Stanislas Cordova—a man who hasn’t been seen in public for more than thirty years.  Driven by revenge (the last time McGrath wrote about Cordova, he lost his marriage and his career), curiosity and the need for the truth, McGrath, with the aid of two strangers, is drawn deeper and deeper into Cordova’s eerie, hypnotic world.

Jamie Lee Curtis has demonstrated her versatility as an actress with starring roles in such acclaimed films as True Lies, which earned her a Golden Globe,  A Fish Called WandaTrading Places and Freaky Friday.  On TV Ms. Curtis earned a Golden Globe for her role in Anything But Love, and also starred in the telefilms The Heidi Chronicles and Nicholas’ Gift, which earned her an Emmy nomination.  Ms. Curtis is also a best-selling author of children’s books, having sold over 5 million books under the banner Books To Grow By. She has a deep and active connection to many children’s charities, and has recently joined the Board of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
