More About This Book

Overview

Gerald Hedgerow, son of two famous writers, one a novelist and the other a poet, has finally achieved success on his own . . . or rather, with the help of Miss Grainger, his pen-named alter ego. Unfortunately, though, this sweet, even tempered agony/advice columnist offers fame at a steep price. First, he can't reveal to the world that the wisdom of Miss Grainger belongs to someone else; she has too many faithful followers. He can't tell his parents; they keep telling him to follow 'her' advice. He can't keep a relationship; every time he gets close to a girl and finds out too much about her he/she tends to panic. And fourth, Miss Grainger is starting to threaten his ego, and he hasn't a clue what to do about it. Still, all those elements might have been taken care of in time, except when Miss Grainger sniffs out a scandal involving innocent seniors and their community center, then this champion for the rights of the elderly comes unglued. If that wasn't bad enough, suddenly she finds those she has exposed are actually quite dangerous, and as Gerald is her noble protector . . . they're both going to have to move mighty fast. From Pittsburgh to the Mediterranean to England, Gerald tries to keep a low profile, but when 'her' enemies sniff out the trail, leading straight to him, every resource he calls upon doesn't seem enough. Finally, realizing the obvious, he vanishes into the realm of his eccentric relatives in Worcester and trusts to luck, which has some surprising consequences.
