Tracee is a runaway bride and kleptomaniac. Lana's an audacious beauty, a recovering alcoholic. Rita is a holy-roller minister's wife, desperate to escape her marriage. One warm summer's night, these three women go on the lam together. Their car breaks down on a rural highway in North Carolina and they're forced to seek shelter in a seemingly abandoned nightclub. Which is where they meet Marcel. And soon everything changes. Marcel, you see, is a lion.
Written with the deftness, humor, and sparkling wit that mark her books, plays, and movies, Delia Ephron's The Lion Is In is an unforgettable story of friendship, courage, love-and learning to salsa with the king of the jungle.
