The Confessions of Edward Day by Valerie Martin
The Confessions of Edward Day is set in the New York theater world during the 1970s. Edward Day is an aspiring actor sharing the ambitions and misfortunes with other struggling actors. During a group outing to the Jersey shore, he beds the beautiful Madeleine Delavergne. Savoring his conquest, he has an accident where he falls into the sea. He is saved by Guy Margate. Guy looks eerily like Edward and is Edward's competition for Madeleine's affection. As Edward's career begins to take off, he can't free himself of Guy's effects on his life. Valerie Martin's novel has received positive reviews with BookPage saying, "In writing a novel about theater, Martin has also written a novel about life and the issues raised by Edward and Guy's dilemma - what do we owe one another, when is it necessary to put another person's needs before our own, can a debt ever be repaid? - are universal."
