I worked for CIA and the UN before I was 20, took a tramp steamer to Istanbul, then worked at The New York Times as a confidential secretary to the managing editor. Eventually, I became a programmer and recently worked in Paris rewriting a reservation system for the high speed trains and Eurostar. I live on California's central coast with a jealous border collie and a cranky cat and survive on temporary contract programming gigs.

Regina, a Hungarian immigrant living in NY in the 1950's, wants to marry off her 14-year old daughter, Marguerite. Her standards are low. All he needs is a steady job. Yet Marguerite's older sister is in disgrace for throwing away her right as an American girl to marry a millionaire and marrying for love instead. "But, Mother," she complains, "every girl in America is an American girl!"
