Coming Together's Hors d'Oeuvres are single-story treats taken from the anthologies and sold as appetizers. Finger food, if you will, for the libido. Lily Harlem's "The Actress" comes from Coming Together: As One which benefits ONE. Sapphire Makepeace has lived her red-carpet life of champagne, caviar, and glittering Oscars to the fullest. But she's also used her celebrity to raise money for charity, one such endeavor included a daring expedition to the summit of Mount Everest in which the world feared her early demise when she became trapped by a furious storm. It was this storm that resulted in the queen of cinema, Hollywood's angel, having a secret shared with only two men: Andy and Lee Driver, brothers, English, mountaineering adrenalin junkies. Fifty-four years later their names still roll around her tongue 100 times a day, because an encounter that extreme, that intense is one that lasts an entire lifetime.
