Has something gone amiss at the Chicago home of the Clam Sisters? When one purchases a rare blue spong from a songbird dealer, the aristocratic sisters and their household staff find themselves exposed to a flying koan, provoking them to cast off their commonplace mores, their staid lives, for something altogether bold and ribald. De la Croix's newest book is a humorous historical fantasy that showcases the follies of heteronormative, misogynistic, repressive life.
