Synopsis

From the great opera star and her talking cat to the young girl with her fire-breathing dragon; from two black ladies in retirement and their mysterious tenant - a world-renowned film star - to two young illegal Mexicans and their 'cracked' landlord, James Purdy shows himself once again to be a master of the short story. In the words of Dorothy Parker, 'Only Purdy could make you think as you read: My God, these people happened! Those who read him are his for life.'
