Heavy-handed feminism

This has all the makings of a fast-paced novel. There is the ex-flower child artist, her rebellious teenage daughter and a man wanted by the FBI. Together they could make for an explosive combination, but the plot becomes bogged down in the trivial and the cloyingly philosophical.

Miserable, magical, theatrical first night

The bold and the beautiful leaped out of their seats to salute the poor and the miserable at the Cultural Centre - and there was not a dry eye in the house.
