This upbeat collection of amiable delights-narratives, fiction, poetry, and commentary-tracks the naïveté, creative pulse, and boundary-defying spirit of Houston Robertson's journey through the circumstantial and emotional complexities of life. She offers a compelling mix of funny, intimate, thoughtful, and sometimes painful storylines. Like a paper chain that is simultaneously fragile, flexible, and an icon of celebration, Houston confesses her vulnerabilities and outrageous variations on old themes until they link into the joy of life as presence.

"Something wonderful happens to us after midlife-ourselves."

Because her personal voice connects deeply to the human condition, expect to discover some link between her experience and your own. Midlife adults may particularly appreciate the escapades of Houston's delayed adolescence as she climbs out of the rubble of her midlife madness into once unthinkable territory. The candor with which she reveals the lonely, prairie truths of childhood and the anguish of midlife doesn't inhibit a reader's impulse to laugh, nod with recognition, or cheer the victories of a recycled virgin. Even if you disagree with some of Houston's strategies and choices, you can't deny the gracious presence that inhabits this book.
