The Virgin, Viv
by Jon Michael Miller
Vivien McBride, 22, is vibrant, talented, attractive, smart. But she is suffering from a horribly exploitative love affair. She masks her pain in flamboyant promiscuity. She meets two people, all three bonding in their mutual attempts to regain their footing after tragic circumstances. Penn State, 1980, they struggle together, comically, exasperatingly, to a supremely satisfying resolution.
