Review Text

Can a 37-year-old Los Angeles housewife who has just found her husband doing something dirty with his secretary and who badly needs to have her hair re-frosted find nirvana by driving off into the Pacific fog? Franna Cooke gets lucky when she collides with a car driven by a whimsical heterosexual hairdresser; for some reason he immerses himself immediately in her problems and shows up the next day to touch up her roots, fix omelets, romp with her kids, and begin a love affair. A future with Jerry-the-hairdresser may mean that Franna's "untroubled, charge-card existence" is over, but Jerry's kindness is boundless, Franna's needs are California-desperate and simple - and so, for ail its surface tartness, is this book.
