PASO ROBLES, CA – January 15, 2022 Elle, a fifty-year-old happily married mother of three, awakens at “The Paper Palace”—the family summer place that she has visited every summer of her life having done something the night before with Jonas that will force her to decide between the life she has made with her genuinely beloved husband, Peter, and the life she always imagined she would have had with her childhood love, Jonas. As Heller colors in the experiences that have led Elle to this day, we arrive at her ultimate decision with all its complexity. Tender yet devastating, The Paper Palace considers the tensions between desire and dignity, the legacies of abuse, and the crimes and misdemeanors of families.
