Overview

Everyone expected big things from Ariel Thompkins. Wasn't she the girl who'd roped her friends into one madcap adventure after another, who'd met the challenge of losing both parents before turning eighteen, who'd gone on to graduate summa cum laude from UCLA? So how did this livewire end up delivering the day's mail for the U.S. Postal Service, hunkering down each night with her half-blind cat in front of the TV, ruminating over the width of her thighs? It looked as though it would take a miracle to get her out of her rut.

Who knew that miracle would come in the form of an acutely candid best friend and a motley crew of strangers—a homeless drunk once aptly nicknamed "Nosy," a lonely old woman seeing catastrophe around every corner, a shy teenager fleeing sexual abuse, a handsome young transplant from the Midwest with a passion for acting and for Ariel herself? Not to mention the fossil remains of a flat-faced crone who just might have been the ancestress of everyone alive today?

Chasing Eve takes us on a funny, sad, hair-raising adventure into the underbelly of the City of Angels, where society's invisible people make a difference to themselves and to others, and where love sometimes actually saves the day.
