A profoundly disturbing novel that ruthlessly dissects American life in the late 1960s, from the author of The White Album and The Year of Magical Thinking.

Benny called for a round of Cuba Libres and I gave him some chips to play for me and went to the ladies' room and never came back. Somewhere out beyond Hollywood, hollowed-out actress Maria Wyeth's life plays out in a numbing routine of perpetual freeway driving.

In her early thirties, divorced from her husband, dislocated from friends, anesthetized to pain and please, Wyeth is a woman who has run out of both desires and motives - the epitome of a generation made ill by too much freedom.
