Isabel del Mar is a mermaid who thought she’d found a prince, but instead found a new world of Hollywood glamor and abusive human sharks.
Mermaids can create copies of themselves by cutting off bits of their own body — and that’s exactly what the original Isabel has done; built herself an empire of glamour using discarded bits of herself.
A very weird story, and typically of Benedict, sharp and haunting as well.
My real history is an open secret, whispered between insiders but never publicly acknowledged, like any other bit of Hollywood gossip. This one has an eating disorder; that one’s gay; this one hosts sleepovers with underage costars at his house; that one’s a mermaid. It’s not a big deal.
