about

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.

Lily Tuck is the author of four novels, including The News from Paraguay, winner of the National Book Award for Fiction, and Siam, a PEN/Faulkner Award finalist, as well as a collection of stories. She divides her time among New York, an island in Maine, and Paris.
