Price: Free! Words: 125,830. Language: English. Published: January 5, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Humor & comedy » Satire, Fiction » Literature » Literary(5.00 from 3 reviews)
This 1980s satirical tale of the able-disabled Pacific Northwest features friendship favorably. It stars three Mexican Americans, one Black female heroine, one Holocaust and two Vietnam War survivors. It also hugs a central gay male character. But it's about a love triangle of 25 to 45 year-olds -- including a roaring drunk Montanan. Racism is lampooned, sexism is promoted - the good kind, anyway!
