"How to keep moving forward when your life has stalled out — that’s part of the push and pull that writer Jennifer Vandever wrestles with in her taut and funny new novel...."
Rosalind Plumley needs something. She's a thirtysomething artist in Portland, Oregon whose output has dwindled to decorative paintings of hummingbirds for the upscale children's boutique where she works. She’s married to a depressed, blocked writer more interested in smoking pot than writing his screenplay while her eccentric family (the daughters are all named after Shakespearean heroines) threaten what little sanity she has left.
A tango class leads her on unexpected journey as she discovers the surprising path of her own desires and a new understanding of her family's complicated history.
