An older, dying woman leads the reader to a well-hidden painting in San Francisco's Chinatown, thus breaking the seal of stories from another lifetime. Back in 1940, San Francisco is the happening scene for fringe personalities and artists, including 6 women who charmingly and cleverly push the boundaries of their illicit lives. Art, science, and magic are playfully debated among these friends, but it is magic which propels them into action. Quirky and entertaining, this tale romanticizes a great city at a time when individual freedoms often lie upon the chopping block!
