"Frank, wistful, and occasionally very funny."
Alternating currents of ironic humor and passionate anger empower this coming-of-age novel set in the Midwest of the 1960's and 70's—a captivating first novel by a fiction writer for The New Yorker and other magazines. ``I couldn't even begin to say who my first actual boyfriend was, there were so many,'' Misty states casually at the outset of this story of her romantic life, which commences with an obsession with her ne'er-do-well dad, by whom she would be regularly abandoned, and which later sputters out in the discovery that her live-in lover has propositioned every female friend she's ever had.
