Pretty Face and Green My Eyes tells the story of Jim, a novelist. After struggling for years Jim has finally broken through with his latest novel being nominated for a Pulitzer. While he doesn't normally do book readings, he agrees to do one at a small bookstore owned by an old friend, Maggie. Jim's novel tells the story of his teenage years, growing up in the early nineties during the Seattle music explosion. The chapter he reads at the bookstore, with Maggie listening in, is about the night Jim and Maggie met, as teenagers at a local rock show. We follow them into the night as they explore the city, and discover an intense attraction to one another that only happens once, with a first love. Pretty Face and Green My Eyes shines the light on the longing for youth, the ways we hold on, and the wonder that comes when rediscovering feelings that we thought were gone forever.
