      Ambitious Becky, who worked and schemed to improve her life, married Terry because he seemed to have everything she wanted--until he lost his job and found another woman. He merely terminated the call because he wanted to see her. Remember, I met him when I was at the Mark Taper? When they spoke on the phone, she was always turning the volume dial down and then down again, and they were always talking on the phone when he was gone, as he so often was. When Ana commits a brazen act that puts her in peril, she flees to Alexandria, where startling revelations and greater dangers unfold, and she finds refuge in unexpected surroundings.

      She could not do her work and follow him around; and their household secret was that she was the main breadwinner. Sam's uncle Zak, initially hostile to Leila, soon becomes her lover; he is also a veterinarian, useful for kind Leila's coterie of stray cats. Moving back and forth among her protagonists, Piercy maintains a suspenseful narrative drive which leads to a rending climax. He was too long for the couch.
