About this title


Perhaps Vera has worked at This Week too long. UFO sightings, sex-change aliens, cancer cures in the humblest garden vegetables, new evidence of life after death. Yetis, Loch Ness monsters, live dinosaurs in hidden African valleys. Five years of writing these stories have taken their toll. What happened to the Vera who dreamed of love and truth and poetry and a world where happiness and justice reigned? How has she wound up alone with a young child in the madness of Manhattan, writing for a paper she would be embarrassed to be seen reading? And worse yet how is it that the story she wrote, FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH FLOWS IN BROOKLYN BACK YARD, has turned out to be true?
'Pungent, audacious, and skillful... one of the best comic novels in years' - CHICAGO TRIBUNE
