Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ann McMan is the lesbian Armistead Maupin, only better." ―Lee Lynch, author of The Swashbuckler

"I Love Ann McMan." ―Dorothy Allison, author of Bastard Out of Carolina

“North Carolina author Ann McMan has a gift like few other authors: she knows how to blend comedy and sensitivity to human issues so seamlessly that reading her novels is like looking into the mirror―not only the one in your home but also the funny distorted ones we used to see in the Fun House. Funny, smart, informed, and very tender, she writes superb novels of multiple levels of interpretation. Ann is not only a fine tale spinner, but also an excellent craftswoman!” ―Grady Harp, Amazon Vine Voice, Hall of Fame, Top 100 Reviewer

From the Back Cover

Aspiring novelist Grace Warner is a burned-out English professor who spends her days teaching four sections of "Beowulf for Cretins" to bored and disinterested students at one of New England's “hidden ivy” colleges. Not long after she is unceremoniously dumped by her longtime girlfriend, Grace meets the engaging and mysterious Abbie on a cross-country flight to attend a friend's 60th birthday party. Sparks fly on and off the plane as the two strangers give in to a reckless impulse, with no strings attached and no information exchanged. Back home at St. Alban's the college rocks Grace's world when it announces the appointment of a new president, the first woman in its 150-year history. Cue Abbie—and cue Grace's collision course with fate, a neurotic dog named Grendel, an increasingly fractious and suspicious tenure review committee, and what very well might be her last shot a real happiness.
