I think that’s a cat in there!
I thought Annie was adopted, in which case it would make no sense to meet Lila’s mother. Or am I totally confused?
Rapunzel on a bad hair day.
Is “August” by the same author who wrote “Light in August”?
@hippogriffYeah, populism! Let populism pour forth!
If you’re going to let Annie box despite her illness, you should at least have her (and her opponent) wear a padded helmet and extra-padded gloves. Maybe that’s why the government is there? (Not likely, I know.)
I’ve maintained up till now that Lila is a pretty good mother, albeit unconventional now and then. But letting a cancer patient enroll in boxing classes???
My parents never once used real cuss words in their lives. I remember using the f—- word in anger one day. I thought they were both going to have heart attacks. Much later on, I started going to church again, and one Sunday morning during spirited debate on some point, I forgot myself and said g-d dammit. The other Bible class members were kind about it, but suggested if I wanted to pray, there might be better forms of address to use. I blushed for the first time in years. Shoot!
I don’t get it.
Mark, I think, is the handsome young man Lila was engaged to for a short while, but whom she turned down because he was a virgin — thought by some to be secretly gay. I don’t recall who Lola is.
