Dorothy Gale Robinson, an aspiring actress, is the daughter of hippie parents with a passion for old movies. When her father is killed suddenly while sipping a non-fat decaf mocha latte at a local coffee shop, Dorothy's life is turned upside down. After an unconventional dispersing of her father's ashes at the Universal Studios' Psycho House, Dorothy's mother decides to sell all her worldly possessions and join a New Age cult headquartered in Banff, Canada. Of course, Dorothy's twin brother, Jude, is too busy with his law firm to help Dorothy save their mother from the clutches of the sinister cult, so she seeks the aid of her new boyfriend, Lahrs, and a cult-buster, Mervyn O'Roy, who just happens to look like Mickey Rooney. The motley trio venture from Florida to Banff, in search of Dorothy's mother and a little romance in the Canadian Rockies.

If you are person like me, a person who does not smile or laugh easily, then this is the book for you. There are not many things I find amusing but Bryson's book, "Hey Dorothy..." is a winner...it is funny, amusing, a quick read, not a complicated story, a simple tale of finding humor in tragedy. If you are also a fan of the Wizard of Oz, of which I am not, you will still get a kick out the the satire, and the obvious parallelism with Dorothy, her friends, and the plot of the story. I read this book twice, not realizing its full potential right away; soon I kept finding new things to compare between the old Oz and the new. To the casual reader this may seem like a simple story, which it is taken on the surface, but when you really delve into the story, it becomes quite unique and amusing, with a happy ending for all; which is what this author likes...It was, I am sure, quite a feat for Ms. Bryson to write such a unique tale.
