In this exuberant portrayal of post-WWI small-town sins and Southern mores, Rita Mae Brown revisits Runnymede, Maryland, a most beguiling Southern town and home to the beloved characters introduced in Six of One, Bingo and Loose Lips. Set against the backdrop of America emerging from World War I, Cakewalk provides an entertaining look at a small town straddling the Mason Dixon line, where the townsfolk remain split between good and bad, or love and sex, or male and female, or politics and sobriety, and the inimitable, irrepressible, distinctly free-thinking Hunsenmier sisters, Louise and Julia-otherwise known as Wheezie and Juts-and their wide circle of equally indelible friends. An outrageous, affecting, and surprising story of passion, rivalry, and small town antics only Rita Mae Brown could create.
