Now in paperback, the second novel from the acclaimed author of I Take You, in which a high-powered attorney dives into the politics of sex, the perils of desire, and why men and women treat each other the way they do.

Raney Moore has it all figured out. An ambitious young partner at a prestigious Manhattan law firm, she’s got a dream job, a loving (and famous) husband, and amazing twin daughters. Her world is full, busy, perfectly scripted. Or so she thinks.

One sunny fall day, a bombshell phone call throws Raney’s well-ordered existence into chaos, and in a fit of rage, she diabolically, hilariously burns everything down. Once the flames subside, she finds herself asking some difficult questions: Who am I? What just happened? Am I ever going to find my way back to normal? Assisted by enterprising paralegals, flirtatious clientele, one dear friend and an unforgettable therapist, Raney thinks the answers are close at hand, only to find life spiraling utterly out of control.

Uproarious, incisive and poignant, Do This For Me introduces a brilliant, off-kilter heroine on a quest to understand sex, fight workplace inequality, and solve the mystery of herself.

Story Locale: New York, NY (contemporary)

INCREDIBLE PLATFORM: The New York Times’ Modern Love column, Cosmopolitan, Salon, Glamour, and more eagerly took original pieces from Eliza to promote I Take You, and we will strategically leverage those relationships for Do This for Me. Eliza is also married to author Joshua Ferris and has strong ties within the literary community.

MAJOR MOVIE NEWS: Tobey Maguire and Whiplash producer Helen Estabrook bought film rights to I Take You, and Eliza is hard at work on the screenplay.

THE GROWN-UP “BIG SISTER” OF I TAKE YOU: Do This for Me combines the sparky humor of Eliza Kennedy’s charming debut with a more mature and accessible storyline and a likable, endearing heroine in Raney Moore.

ELIZA KENNEDY attended the University of Iowa and Harvard Law School, where she was an editor of the Harvard Law Review. After graduation she served as a law clerk for a federal judge, then practiced litigation for several years at a prestigious Manhattan law firm. She lives in New York with her husband and son. This is her second novel.
