Wonder Boys

English professor Grady Tripp is a novelist struggling to finish his follow up book to a big success he had seven years earlier with his first book. While working at the Pennsylvanian university we see the chaotic life of Grady begin to sprawl out everywhere, he is having an affair with the university chancellor, Sara Gaskell who’s husband is the chairman of the English department, dealing with a troubled but brilliant writer student in James Leer, his wife just left him, a student is in love with him, his publisher/editor is hounding him for the new book, and now he is involved with the death of Sara’s husbands dog and the theft of a famous Marilyn Munroe jacket. Throughout all this Grady is trying to finish his book and get it published with the looming prospect of complete failure over him.
