Delilah Blue has always been a bit of an outsider, ever since she moved from Toronto to Los Angeles when she was eight. Twenty now and desperate to become an artist like her long-lost mother but unable to pay for classes, Delilah does something nearly unthinkable. She takes a job as an art model, peeling off her clothes for a classroom full of students so she can learn from the professors as the students draw parts she’d much rather keep under wraps.
Her only real companion in life is her father, a dapper, single salesman. But as he’s entered his mid-50s, his personality seems to be changing. He forgets simple tasks and is often disoriented, signs that he is going through early-onset Alzheimer’s. The disease presents just as Delilah’s long-estranged mother, who Delilah always believed abandoned the family, re-enters the scene with a young daughter in tow and reveals a secret about the past that will permanently change their lives. Delilah must decide if her mother is the selfish woman she’s always assumed left her behind or whether somewhere deep inside her father’s memory is the truth behind the family’s separation.
Told with wit and poignancy, The Truth About Delilah Blue showcases Tish Cohen’s wonderfully addictive storytelling and characters you won’t soon forget.
