Compulsively neat, obsessively organised, Lily is a writer who
writes about writers. When she is asked to contribute to a book on
lost icons, she visits Rita Boothe - photographer, journalist and
wit - who took LSD when she was forty and never lived up to her
promise. Rita shows Lily some of her photographs, including one of
a beautiful, sexy creature drinking Jack Daniels in a white
limousine. It is Mattie, Lily's mother. Lily stares in wonder and
with envy - she wishes she could live with such abandon. But Mattie
is no longer the woman in the limo, and she and Lily's father live
in a neglected house with their neglected marriage. Lily and her
siblings want to mend their parents' rift, but Marie's husband has
walked out, and Rory avoids coming home altogether. Unless
something happens, the family's going to fade away. But something
is about to happen...
