It is inevitable that when one is fixing the ties of one's halter-top, one bends one's head down and in, forcing the eyes to one's bosom. It is in this situation, fiddling with a pair of black strings against the nape of my neck, that I contemplate the low arc of my neckline. Hugging soft, f . . . ()

"Your parents are swingers," Jon Stewart's voice says. "What?" I say in disbelief. I turn the corner. Light floods over me; my mother is sitting up serenely on the far side of an enormous bed, modestly covered up to her underarms by sheets and a butter yellow comforter. "Hi, honey.""Hi." My& . . .
