Safina Moncur is on a first-name basis with every bartender in the Bahamas. She's also on a first-name basis with depression, disappointment and disarray. Until her dad finds her a job so easy even she couldn't screw it up: just babysit some contestants for a week when the Miss Universe Pageant comes to town. What could go wrong? It's not like she can't stay sober for a week....
But in barely an eyeblink things start going sideways. 'Haywire' and 'hangover' were just words before Safina rewrites the meaning of chaos—on an international scale, and in a style all her own.
Ex's, cons, crooks, terrorists, attorneys, TV stars, pirates, and pure dumb luck combine to keep her racing around the globe, wondering what the hell's happening to her, and what there is to drink.
Martin Phipps is the author of: The Sexes; The Concentrationists; More Wine?; Rue des Mensonges; Imaginary Friends; The Hard Way; and three books of short stories. He's written for the newsletter of The Anthony Burgess Center and of The International Anthony Burgess Foundation.
