Description: Silvie Page has spent her entire life entangled in the frustrations of her demanding and exhibitionistic mother, whom she calls Mimi. Moving back and forth in time between the little girl she was and the woman she's become, Silvie reveals the origins of her conflict with her mother. In one of Silvie's earliest memories, her mother tells her that her name is an anagram of Elvis, Mimi's early suitor and greatest idol. Caught up in her fantasy world of Elvis and a life never-lived, unfulfilled artistic aspirations (she's an expert seamstress and amateur fashion designer), Mimi spends her energies trying to force her family to fulfill her own exaggerated ambitions.

As Silvie grows up, her talent as an artist flourishes, and she eventually moves to New York, where she finds work for a high-profile home decorating magazine. There, she's able to grow up and out, away from her mother and the pressures of home, finding solace in her painting. Silvie's memories of her mother -- her revelations about Elvis, the locket and pictures she reveals at a dinner party, her attention-getting outfits, her relentless demands for control. In New York, Silvie meets a doctor named Scottie, and she longs to share her happiness with her mother, only to discover that the mother she's beginning to understand has cancer. With her own adult life just beginning, Silvie must take on the most difficult venture of her life, caring for her mother, planning a wedding, and resolving some of the conflicts with her mother before she dies.
