   schema:reviewBody ""In "Over the Hill," a friendship is ruptured in the wake of a biking accident in France; in "The Bad Hand," a friend who has been an important figure in Jenny's life has a recurrence of cancer; in "House of Cards," Jenny is forced out of her poker game but is invited to join another - this one with Bella Abzug as its presiding spirit. Several stories flash back to Jenny's past, including "Family Pets," which evokes a beloved dog and a detested stepfather, and "Mind and Body," which tells the story of Jenny's marriage and of her discovery of her bisexuality. By the last story, "A Hundred Hearts," Jenny sees parts of her life come together as she joins in a Gay Pride parade in Paris, accompanied by her grown son and baby granddaughter."--Jacket." ;
