The Lion Is In | [Delia Ephron]

The Lion Is In

Tracee is a runaway bride and kleptomaniac. Lana's an audacious beauty and a recovering alcoholic. Rita is a holy-roller minister's wife, desperate to escape her marriage and discover whether she actually has a mind of her own.

One warm summer's night, these three women go on the lam together. Their car breaks down on a rural highway in North Carolina, and they're forced to seek shelter in a seemingly abandoned nightclub - which is where they meet Marcel. And soon everything changes.

Publisher's Summary

Tracee is a runaway bride and kleptomaniac. Lana's an audacious beauty and a recovering alcoholic. Rita is a holy-roller minister's wife, desperate to escape her marriage and discover whether she actually has a mind of her own.

One warm summer's night, these three women go on the lam together. Their car breaks down on a rural highway in North Carolina, and they're forced to seek shelter in a seemingly abandoned nightclub - which is where they meet Marcel. And soon everything changes.

Marcel, you see, is a lion, a retired circus performer stuck in a cage in this godforsaken roadhouse. And through admiration - one might even say love - for Marcel, our heroines find a way to confront their complicated pasts and fight for the strange, embracing relationships they've formed out in the middle of nowhere. They ultimately navigate their way back to their own hearts - and ours.

Written with the deftness, humor, and sparkling wit that have marked her books, plays, and movies, Delia Ephron's The Lion Is In is an unforgettable story of friendship, courage, love - and learning to salsa with the king of the jungle.

    "Bad Logic On My Part"

    I've been waiting for other reviews to show up, hoping someone would encourage me to go on, that perhaps I just didn't get it with this one. But a month later and nothing.

    It was an impulse purchase - my reasoning (or thought flow) went something like this:

    "I need a light fun read; two women on the run, in a convertible with a lion!? What great whimsy; I like lions; I loved Richard Parker (tiger in Life of Pi); I liked Thelma and Louise; 'learning to salsa with the king of the jungle?!'; sounds like fantastic fun!"

    ...never got to the salsa lesson. After about 2 hours, in an almost dazed state, I realized that I had picked such a light piece of fluff that it had floated right in one ear and out the other. So, I researched this one, and found out people loved it! It was "moving" and "heartfelt" and a "hilarious must read"! Isn't that how it goes...one man's trash is another man's treasure. I'm glad people liked it. I really liked the cover picture, so I gave it an extra star for that reason. (Ouch)
