See to it you can take a slap as easy as a kiss. That is if you want to get anywhere in this world and not be anybody's fool.
Clara Bishop feels life has served her up far too many slaps and not nearly enough kisses. When she is suddenly jilted by her philandering husband, she follows him to London, determined she must win him back.
Armed only with a suitcase of vintage clothing inherited from her grandmother, a former film noir actress, Clara discovers that the clothes really do make the woman. Dressed to kill, she adopts a new femme fatale persona: confident, sexy and set on revenge.
But on the road to retaliation, Clara discovers an unfinished film script that sheds light on her grandmother's mysterious death years before. As Clara's life is transported into a living, breathing film from the fifties, she discovers not only the secrets of her grandmother's past, but the chance to write her own ending too . . .
MY LIFE IN BLACK & WHITE is a time-travel romantic-comedy set within the shadowy world of film noir.
