Abstract:

The unbelievable (and unverified) life of Clarissa Spellbinder, as told by Miss Spellbinder herself Miss Clarissa Spellbinder has lived a truly astonishing life ... or so she tells us. Her father was the intrepid adventurer Lord Andrew Spellbinder and her mother, the fiery Latin songbird Amelita de la Luna, who traveled the world and escaped almost certain death on numerous occasions. Miss Spellbinder relates their spectacular exploits to the patrons of the Back Door Bar That Once Faced the Sea on the fantastical island of Moly--though her listeners seem far more interested in hearing about the misadventures (of the sexual variety, mainly) of Clarissa's enormous neighbor, the former carnival circuit star Fat Satsuma Johnson, a.k.a. the Black Queen of the Atchafalaya, a.k.a. the pie-eating queen of southern Louisiana. Miss Spellbinder, of course, is more than happy to oblige, since all her stories serve as ammunition in her ongoing battle against the disease of the literal minded. What matters most, she tells us, is a unique point of view, for without one, you have no pinnacle on which to stand and express yourself.
