Summary Division Street. Chris, a burnt out sixties radical, has settled in Chicago seeking obscurity as an insurance underwriter. He wants to forget his activist past, but is besieged by old cronies and unwanted new ones: a former Black militant, now a transexual city cop; his loopy ex-wife who speaks only the words of rock song cliches; a bomb wielding Serbian restauranteur; a former partner in radicalism who now rails agianst the "women's movement"; a prostitute who espouses the virtues of promiscuity, and his African American-Polish landlady. "Steve Tesich has not only found a great subject, but he has also found the courage to tackle it in a daring, mischievous way."--The New York Times.
Baba Goya is a loudmouth mother who goes through husbands and orphans like the Turkish coffee she makes in a dirty old soup pan. In Queens she presides over a household comprised of a childish orphan who happens to be a cop, an elderly gentleman who explodes every time somebody calls him grandpa, a dying husband and an errant daughter who cries all night. The husband, Baba's fifth, is already submitting an ad for her sixth. The cop catches a Japanese stealing cameras and chains him to a radiator, the daughter guiltily confesses she voted for Nixon and runs off, and the husband, who may not die after all, insists they must wait out Watergate for a Democratic.
