On paper, Nora's life looks perfect. She's moving in
with her boyfriend Dan, she has a stable job and a great
group of friends. But she's stuck in what she refers to as
"meta-life," the plight of overthinking and secondguessing
to the point of self-sabotage. One day at work,
Nora decides to thwart her meta-life by following her
instincts. In what feels like a moment of revelation, she
quits her job. Immediately, her meta-life goes into overdrive:
What on earth was she thinking--and what is she
going to do now? Fortunately, when a friend asks Nora
to rewrite her Internet dating profile, she realizes that
not only is she good at it, but she really enjoys it. Billing
herself as a Cyrano de Bergerac for the lovelorn, Nora
finally begins to find professional success. But soon,
Nora's meta-life has latched onto the question she's
asked so many clients: What are the five things she can't
live without? Is her flourishing business one of them? Is
Dan? With each new client and each step she takes in
her own relationship, she must confront her biggest demon--
her self-sabotaging "meta-life." But will she be
able to slay it forever?
