Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0972323465, Paperback)Frances Johnson doesn’t want to attend the town dance. But there is pressure. The people of Munson, her small Florida town, make their needs known: Ray, her boyfriend who is “overfocused on world history”; Mal, the horsey, earnest, fry cook at Mal’s Pico Diner, who offers her his cabin;Palmer, the town doctor who can find no cure for the mysterious scar Frances bears; her mother, speaking to her through “the mechanical screeching” of Munson’s patched telephone lines. Nearby, a volcano the townspeople call “Sharla” spews lava and stones, lighting the night sky with its portentous burning. At once measured and suspenseful, Frances Johnson is a comedy of manners in the tradition of Jane Bowles.
