Summary
Englishman Howard Belsey, a professor at Wellington, has been married for 30 years to Kiki, an American who no longer resembles the sexy activist she once was. Their three children pursue their own paths: Levi quests after authentic blackness ; Zora believes that intellectuals can redeem everybody ; and Jerome struggles to be a believer in a family of atheists. Then Jerome, Howard's older son, falls for Victoria, the daughter of right-wing icon Monty Kipps, and the two families find themselves thrown together, provoking an honest--and honestly funny--look at people's self-deceptions
