Lily, Molly, and Inez are women of a certain age, of a certain bearing, of a certain class. Late one dire night, Molly telephones from Connecticut to catch Lily up with the news: Inez's corpse -- near-naked but wearing boots -- has been discovered propped up "like a broom" in a corner of her Soho loft. It is an occasion ripe for an all-night heart-to-heart conversation, bouncing deliriously from one evasion to the next -- until the pair of talk-crazy, talk-weary women have successfully diverted themselves with all the wonderfully vagrant stuff of life . . . with everything, in fact, except grief.

Review:

“Most impressive . . . Sharp, funny and strangely affecting . . Highly original . . . Wonderful satire.” (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times)

“Sophisticated and funny... Tuck gives us... with the skill and technique of an unblinking juggler, a heart-stopping struggle.” (Washington Post Book World)

Tuck has a knack for capturing the meadering quality of real conversation.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Shows a real gift for comic dialogue.” (Library Journal)

“Surprising . . . Technically audacious.” (Newsday)

“What great fun this novel is! . . . A lovely and engaging tour de force. Hooray for Lily Tuck!” (George Plimpton)

“Hilarious, appalling, profound... What an illuminating satire Tuck has written, her hearing so acute, her night-vision so preternatural!” (Richard Howard)

“What an ear Lily Tuck has!... Tuck has written a very funny and completely original book. I loved it!” (Frances FitzGerald)
