Description

Ed Wintle was a successful, urbane professional whose life, at forty, was very comfortable. He had reached the point when he looked around at his well-ordered, unfettered single existence and wonderedG's 'Is this all there is' After a desperate call from his sister at her wit's end, his street-wise thirteen-year-old niece Tiffany-a writhing ball of adolescent anger-comes to live with him. If he felt he needed a shot in the arm, what he got proved more like electroshock therapy.
