Meadow Mori and Carrie Wexler grew up together in Los Angeles, and both became film-makers.
Meadow makes challenging documentaries; Carrie makes successful feature films with a feminist slant.
The two friends have everything in common - except their views on sex, power, movie-making and morality. And yet their loyalty trumps their different approaches to film and to life.
Until, one day, a mysterious woman with a unique ability to cold-call and seduce powerful men over the phone - not through sex, but through listening - becomes the subject of one of Meadow's documentaries.
Her downfall, and what makes her so extraordinarily moving, is that she pretends to be someone she is not. Heart-breaking and insightful, Innocents and Others is an astonishing novel about friendship, identity, loneliness and art.
