Max Normane is the kind of woman that some less creative individuals might refer to as a "Type A" personality. Her eye for the undiscovered literary gem is famous, and Max repreatedly demonstrates this ability in "URBANITY," the literary magazine she presides over. When Max meets Jake Benjamin, a struggling but talented writer whose previous attempts at getting published have been sabotaged by his own egocentric idiosyncracies and lousy attitude, Max offers him a mutually beneficial solution of Faustian proportions - his seed in exchange for publication. In other words, she'll give life to his child, if he gives life to hers. Despite Jake's shock and outrage at such blackmail, this bizarre opportunity for long-awaited literary succces is too good for the frustrated artist to pass up. As Jake reaches ever higher echelons of renown and Max's tightly organized world devolves into the mess of single parenthood, something truly horrific happens... they begin to fall agressively, angrily and absurdly in love.
A powerful editor yearns to be a mother, and decides to "skip the husband and go straight to the baby". She chooses a talented but destitute novelist and offers to publish his work in exchange for 10cc's of his sperm and a guarantee that he will stay out of her life. As his career flourishes, she descends into the chaos of single mom-dom.
