"A tale of an African-American restaurateur who is dying, his beautiful but withdrawn wife, and this woman, Claude, who becomes entangled in their relationship. Other players include a jealous transvestite, a Korean War veteran, as well as accidental parents and their misfit child turned savior. They all live in or nearby an unusual trailer park on Long Island Sound, all struggling with humor and heart to survive the summer of 2001... Their lives collide in surprising ways and each is, in the end, handed the opportunity to act heroically."--from publisher description.
