It's 1959. The town of Clinton, just a short train ride from the Big Apple, is awash with sexuality. There's Olive, who feels the urge to merge with her married neighbor Sally, but fears her lesbian lust is an abomination. Olive's long-suffering husband, Jerry, seeks solace in the arms of his bombshell sister-in-law. And why did Sally's husband, Fred, disappear with Ruth Archer at the hottest party on Morris Drive every Saturday night? Pulp sleazemaster Orrie Hitt hits a bull’s-eye with this shocking tale of tawdry affairs in mid-century America.

One of the top in terms of how enjoyable it was and how quickly it moved.
She really brings the book to life with her distinctive voice and characterizations.
