Biting the Apple is the story of Eve Glass, once an Olympic sprinter and now a motivational speaker. She's the author of two books, Going the Distance: Endurance for Achievers and If Grace is the Goal. The problem is, her own endurance is waning and her confidence in her expertise on grace is paling. Even worse, her kleptomaniac tendencies are intensifying, and a friend from her childhood has begun stalking her. Glass, a product of other people's dreams her entire life, is now a woman in search of authenticity. She sheds her ex-husband/coach, shakes free from her business manager, and lands not only in jail, but eventually in the arms of her stalker. As her handlers panic, Glass finally walks away as the author of her own story. Biting the Apple pokes fun at some of our dearest-held postmodern ideas about the existence of a true self and humanity as product.
