Frankie Goldberg is a former actress and stand-up comic whose life in Hollywood falls apart with an exclamation mark when a mudslide destroys her hopes, her home, and her entire collection of impractical footwear. Needing comfort, she returns to her mother's B&B in Woodstock, New York, where she spent her teen years doing chores and chasing after the handyman's hot, high-school-jock son. But the joke's on her. Now she has to deal with the mess she left behind, including her non-relationship with her bossy older sister and their mother's illness. As if her new life isn't complicated enough, the handyman's son, now a minor-league baseball coach, is back in town.

"Author Laurie Boris has provided her story's narrator with wry, insightful observations that punctuate every scene -- some of it sentimental, some indignant, all self-effacing -- adding up to a highly readable debut novel." - Fran Wood, Books Editor, The Star-Ledger
"In this endearing debut novel, a California refugee in crisis returns to Woodstock to find the family home where her mother once ran a respectable inn infested by nude yoginis. Worse yet, true love lurks. Boris's long strange trip to the home front is moving and fun." - Chronogram Magazine
