Description: The concluding volume in Mary Cantwell's autobiographical trilogy finds her newly divorced and ready to escape life in New York and the demands of single parenthood. Traveling on assignment to some of the remotest and least glamorous corners of the globe, Cantwell is scared, lonely, and depressed -- and she vows never to leave her children again if God will just get her out of this latest hellhole. Yet the farther she rambles, the more solace she finds in the company of strangers. She also finds deep, if passing, happiness in a relationship with "the balding man, " a famous writer, and warmth and hilarity in her friendship with the legendary novelist Frederick Exley. Imbued with a sensibility as distinct as the city Cantwell calls home, this strikingly candid memoir offers readers another fascinating glimpse into the life of a woman with one foot in the past and the other, warily, in her present.
