Maggie and Bean

MAGGIE AND BEAN

Feisty, funny best friends in their late 60s, live in New York City where Bean was an actress and Maggie a force in City Cultural Affairs. Both women battle serious illness, hate their medications, their doctors and their short-time-left prognoses. Refusing dependency, they decide to go to die, with help, in Amsterdam where they rent a houseboat from a handsome 70-year old Dutchman, fall into love and battle, and end up in surprising ways.

The Promise

THE PROMISE (with Leke Tasi)

A true and extraordinary love story set in the largely unknown period of massive oppression in the last half of the 20th century in Europe’s most mysterious country. Resistance, love and survival in Albania’s gulag.

Leke Tasi is an Albanian writer and former prisoner in the Communist camps.

Corinne Browne accompanied the story’s hero to Albania to witness the removal of his mother and sister’s bones from their graves near one of the prison camps. That scene opens the story.
