The Devil's Cheerleader

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

After a nervous breakdown, Charles has lost his job, his wife, and his house. Cast out of society, he becomes fixated on his corrupt former boss's daughter and enters her chaotic, artistic world. The Devil's Cheerleader is the story of Charles, a real estate lawyer, who quits his job because the firm he works for is corrupt. Plagued by misgivings and alcoholism, Charles becomes obsessed with Sarah, his former boss's artist daughter who represents everything he feels he has lost in his many years of staying with a stuffy wife and arranging sketchy real estate deals for a living. Charles is faced with the prospect of conforming and going back to work, or resisting what he sees as a meaningless life to follow his heart to wherever bizarre situations it may lead him. In pursuing Bernard's daughter and her counter cultural world, Charles inadvertently brings down Bernard and his business partner Caldwell, Charles' evil plutocrat brother-in-law, and in doing so, discovers his truer self.

“Not many people get into the Cooper Union,” Charles said.

They turned their attention back to the stage where Emily was dancing with a cadre of giant mice.

“She makes a great Clara, doesn’t she?” Sarah said.

“She is amazing.”
