Leaving behind a dead-end job, failed artistic aspirations, and the prospect of another cold New York winter, Phillip Powell returns to the town he spent years trying to escape to look after his mother, who has gone a little crazy. Two aunts-one of whom is a religious fanatic, the other a lesbian-a roommate who is both a hooker and a voyeur, an old classmate with a big secret, and Phillip's demented mother all play a part in Phillip's discovery that the complicated ties of home and family are often the very things that set us free.
Cochrane Lambert is the writing team of Becky Cochrane and Timothy Lambert, authors of The Deal, and (under the name Timothy James Beck) It Had To Be You, He's the One, and I'm Your Man.

"Phillip Powell needs a stroke of good luck. He ditched college and fled his Mississippi Gulf Coast hometown to make a name for himself as a painter in New York. Now, five years later, empty canvases clutter the Hell's Kitchen apartment he can no longer afford, and his latest lukewarm boyfriend dumps him for a poser named Stefan. Then a very special fortune cookie tells him: Everything is about to change." "An ultimatum - and a generous offer - from his imperious grandfather pulls Phillip back to Mississippi, where his beautiful, sweetly deranged mother hides out in the antebellum mansion where Phillip grew up. As he learns to make connections with his Bible-thumping aunt, a tenderhearted leather daddy, and a high school friend with a secret, Phillip rekindles the creative spark he was afraid he'd lost. He also reaches out to a not-so-lost lover who inspires Phillip to make some luck of his own."--BOOK JACKET.
