Miss Lucy Parker is a prim, proper elderly lady. When a Volkswagen Beetle—the new kind, and pink—PINK!—turns onto the winding road that leads to Lucy's farmhouse, Lucy is sure the car contains hippies. Except hippies are not in the car. A woman is, a woman wearing a short, blood-red dress that hugs her body. Thus begins Lucy Parker's great adventure. More

About Q. Kelly

I live in Virginia, where I am a writer and an editor. I also have a master's degree in deaf education. In my free time, I hike and savor frappuccinos.

Fact One: I like corny jokes. If you have any good ones, send them my way!

Fact Two: My favorite color is purple, but my writing is gray. Life is not black and white. I often write about issues and characters where there is no "right" answer.

Fact Three: I'm weird. I like being weird.

Review by: Lilaine DuSud on Nov. 26, 2011 : star star star star
Still in the vast realm of the Author's usual creative and quirky imagination, this well written compilation - most of the stories, actually - is probably not to be read by very sensible souls or persons who might be disturbed by any of the words/concepts listed in the tags list. By the way, some tags are missing, like suicide, infanticide, child abduction, that could be effective warnings.
In any way, this collection of remarkably original short stories can't let you indifferent.
I first gave 3 stars (which IMO is not a bad review) due to the lack of notice. After re-reading it, I'm reconsidering this evaluation up to 4 stars, if only to be true to myself, and my own appreciation of this book, which is after all the main reason for this review to exist, the other reason being to advise sensible readers of potential ill effects.
