A sharply humorous, fast-paced debut novel about the effects--some predictable, some wildly unexpected--that an encounter at gunpoint can have on the life of a (previously) assured young woman. The gun in question is pointed at twenty-one-year-old Ellis as she walks through a New York City park. In the end she is unrobbed and physically unharmed. But she is left psychologically reeling. Over the next few weeks Ellis keeps everyone at bay: the police, the men who want to save her ("the ROTC boy" poet and "the red-faced representative of the world"), and the university therapist who hints that her sweaters may be too tight. But when Ellis accompanies her mother, a nurse, on a mission to the Philippines, she finds that life--even if held up--cannot be held back, and neither, finally, can she.
