General Note
"A Borzoi book"--Title page verso.
An exuberant black comedy about love, grief, sex, guilt, and one woman's hairbrained scheme to tranquilize her voraciously amorous girlfriend for a few days so that she might pay off her drug dealer, make some soup and finally get some peace and quiet. Frances was not looking for a relationship when she met Elaine in a bar, but somehow Elaine ended up in Frances' bed and never left. Now, faced with mounting pressure from her drug dealer, Dom, Frances comes up with a terrible idea: she asks Elaine to move in with her for real. Unfortunately, this seemingly romantic overture makes Elaine even more sex-crazed and maniacal with love. Frances fears she may never escape the relationship, so, given no choice, she makes the obvious decision: she will sedate Elaine.
