Each face their own dilemmas and emotional challenges.
The first book from this finger-on-the-pulse, West-Australian-raised girl, Episode Eight plunges readers into the thick of a reality TV show. Dissecting themes of relationships, gender stereotypes, love, loss, identity, and struggles with ego, this compelling story is told through the eyes of a group of complicated characters, all of whom face their own personal challenges. Each represent the various experiences that Megan has dealt with, both on and off screen.
Drawing on her experiences on a string of notable reality TV shows, Marx aims to discuss the real effects that manipulated productions are having on society. Her own emotions, and those of others, permeate this memoir and contribute to its investigation of the “perfect lives” that contemporary media constructs and celebrates. Why are we so addicted to them? Episode Eight may answer exactly that.
Hoping to escape the burdens of his dark past, Henry joins the cast for a reality dating show, The Eligibles. His life starts to spiral out of control as he comes face-to-face with the star and romantic interest of the show, Poppy. However, nothing is as it seems… Henry knows Poppy a little too well, but does Poppy know Henry?
Follow Henry and Poppy, as together they weave in and out of love. This is a story where morality is constructed under the gaze of the paparazzi’s lens. Episode Eight is fast paced and filled with secrets that are revealed and buried under a backdrop of fame, beauty, socially constructed ‘perfect’ realities, drugs, guilt, and sex. As it twists and turns it will leave you questioning your own morality.
Don’t we all have our own dirty little secrets?
