Abstract:

Another Sunset Touch-ed novel about four ladies sliding down the other side of the hill in their fifties -- while widowed, divorced or unmarried, they are still receptive to experience. They all share the common denominator of living uptown in Manhattan in a house called the Bull Run where their tenancy is threatened. During the course of the novel however they are very much at home: Laura Larsen to any one of a number of gay young boys downstairs who drift in and out of her bed while she drifts in and out of an alcoholic haze before burning to death; Grace Frazier, more feminine than her dentist daughter, who takes a young man from Taiwan as a lover; the Princess who is robbed twice; and Miss Gola whose life cycle features an affair, an abandonment and the product of the former -- a hydrocephalic child.
