Author Olivia Wilde’s “The Dawn of Silva” follows filmmakers on the hunt for the lead character of their upcoming movie – taking them on a metaphysical adventure

Life is like a movie where everyone has a role to play. But sometimes, people can become so obsessed with finding the perfect person to play a certain character, that they fail to realize that real-life is different from reel-life. This is the dilemma that Shari, a character in Olivia Wilde's debut novel faces, when her partner, Alex, becomes obsessed with finding his 'Muse', Ashlyn.

The Dawn of Silva follows filmmaker Shari in her attempt to satisfy Alex's obsession. But more than a physical journey, her metaphysical adventure takes her on an exploration of self - 'Silva' the super subconscious mind in each of us. In the upcoming movie, 'Silva' is represented as a tangible place that people go to for guidance and understanding.

Well-written characters and page turning plot, The Dawn of Silva, the first of a series, is an intriguing novel of love, obsession and drama that spans New York City, the film industry and ordinary everyday life 3000 miles away.

This book will be featured at the 2011 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 12 to 16, 2011.
