Steve Martin?s New York Times bestseller Shopgirl is now a major motion picture, in theaters October ?05, starring Steve Martin and Claire Danes.
Mirabelle is the ?shopgirl? of the title, a young woman, beautiful in a wallflowerish kind of way, who works behind the glove counter at Neiman Marcus ?selling things that nobody buys anymore . . .?
Mirabelle captures the attention of Ray Porter, a wealthy businessman almost twice her age. As they tentatively embark on a relationship, they both struggle to decipher the language of love — with consequences that are both comic and heartbreaking. Filled with the kind of witty, discerning observations that have brought Steve Martin critical success, Shopgirl is a work of disarming tenderness.
?Shopgirl?s pacing is gentle and accomplished, its tone tender-hearted.? —Washington Post
