The life and times of Cecyl, who escapes from the racist society of Phoebus, Virginia to the 'liberal' North of Boston.

Yet her encounters with the Post-War Babies, a group of South American musicians, and an assortment of room-mates, leave her perplexed at the barriers raised by class, sex, race and by people who won't 'treat each other normal'.

Utterly convinced that everyone knows something she doesn't, Cecyl possesses that uncluttered honesty which sees right to the heart of human contradiction and hypocrisy.
