What if against all expectations, at the age of 21, you break through with your first novel but in doing so lose everyone around you? Momo Zebbi is a young, ambitious Amsterdammer with one big dream: to become a bestselling author. His dream comes true, but it turns his life completely upside down. His parents kick him out of the house, he loses his great love, and his friends shun him. Without a home, family, or relationship, Momo embarks on a search for recognition, love, and himself.
