Ellery Pierce finding himself middle aged and unable to find the perfect woman, builds her. Using his technical knowledge of animatronics, he creates Phyllis, a beautiful, perfectly formed woman who is run by a battery and has warm water running through the wires of her skeletal system to keep her skin feeling warm. At first, Phyllis is the perfect wife: smart, obedient, cooks meals and cleans house without a single sarcastic remark.
However, Ellery underestimates the learning capabilities of his creation and she leaves him to pursue a career in show business. Phyllis begins her career as a stripper, then works her way up the ladder to phone-sex operator and theater actress until she becomes a box office star as a sexy action heroine. When her ratings slide, she reinvents herself, setting her sights on the Presidency of the United States.
This novel is a tongue-in-cheek commentary on fame, love, Hollywood, and politics. Will the next president be an animatronic woman? Or will Ellery wake up from his depression in time to stop his creation from going too far? Read this book to find out.
