About the Book

Geoff is a man of 50, a man destroyed. In the chaotic circumstances of a Pride party in San Francisco he is given an opportunity to meet, Elizabeth Cromwell, a professional dominant. He asks her to find a woman named Prescott who is to apologize for events at a hotel, Tors Lake. A week later Elizabeth receives Geoff’s gift of a valuable comic book collection. Elizabeth meets Geoff’s mother’s lawyer to ask that Geoff cease and desist his interest in her, but Geoff has disappeared. Soon after, Elizabeth is at a July 4 labor rally at San Francisco City Hall with a lawyer, Sheila Prescott. A huge explosion kills hundreds and spares Elizabeth and an old blind man’s dog. They set off in a series of encounters. Each links a moment to a moment before and a moment after, weaving a thread of bizarre connections to a California Historical House. Upstairs is an old photograph of a railroad boxcar with the name, Tors Lake.

About the Author

At 14, Jennifer Mason left Kansas for Malibu. With a nagging alter ego, neither able to talk herself into or out of a commitment to writing, she took the coast road to San Francisco. In an abandoned prohibition speakeasy she invented the English Department, where she discovered a voice in a brand of professional dominance as mysterious in its puritan fantasy as it is comical in its enactments of how we need to feel. She is the author of three previous novels, The Oddball Gypsy Raconteur, Valedictorian, Sebastopol. Like Tors Lake, her stories follow their characters through scenes of what they think they see when they are most confused, the way things usually are when we struggle for an erotic connection. She lives and writes on Noe Street.
