FAMEPUNK is a novel that takes place in a fictional version of women’s professional tennis.
The story opens with US Open 1987. When an unknown qualifier from Brooklyn topples a tournament favorite in a second round night match, veteran sports writer Ellen Nagoya finds herself on the dangerous trail of the year’s biggest—and most mysterious—story in sports.
Meanwhile, as brash, big-tipping, yellow-eyed teenager Emma Jasohn makes her more and more outrageous way to a title showdown with the great Freya, who knows everything, they’re joined on the world stage by an international cast of characters—including:
Amanda McKinley…whose two-fisted backhand made her America’s sweetheart, but whose back has done her wrong;
Ilya Kasimov…talent recruit;
Maria Helm…whose daughter the Wimbledon champion is turning out to be a disappointment;
Shanaya Greene…the Ice House Princess of Coney Island whose tennis scholarship at Stanford University is on the line;
And Z…whose daughter Theodosia is going to set the tennis world on fire—next year, when she turns twelve.
