Mark Twain wrote: It is popular to admire the Arno. It is a great historical creek with four feet in the channel and some scows floating around. It would be a plausible river if they would pump some water into it.

Chronicles the sexual obsession of a middle-aged author renowned for his beautiful, old-fashioned illustrations of children's books. He is captivated by a sixteen-year-old runaway who tells him nothing of her past when she moves into his San Francisco home. When the artist discovers that his mysterious lover is the missing daughter of a famed film star, a scandalous story uncoils.
This is unlike any book I've read by Anne Rice. I didn't want it to end. There's nothing supernatural about the story and the romance is quite believable. And there's actually a plot with some suspense. The characters are well developed and interesting. This is simply a great story read expertly by Ray Foushee.
