about this item

Blonde, on the flashy side, Beula had long ago taken to heart her father’s conviction of her two-left-legs ineptitude. Beula Kettlehole is a hollow left behind by patriarchy’s retreating glacier, her plight that of all women who had adhered blindly to male methodology, accepting that survival depended on deference to universal left-brain standards. Her identity is based on what men think of her. An unlikely protagonist, construed largely against the novel's cast of self-satisfied male characters, she fears that showing her true colors will lead neither to matrimony nor any other form of male support or even approval. The novel follows Beula's fantastic, if fragile, success in Bogota Colombia to her crash landing in New York City's harsh reality, where occurs the crisis that transforms her identity.
