Summary
At her kitchen table somewhere in the South, Powell's narrator embarks on a spirited and often hilarious imagining of certain historical figures and current national preoccupations. Ostensibly writing her grocery list, Mrs. Hollingsworth most happily loses her sense of herself until her family intrudes along with two petty criminals named Oswald and Bundy
Summary
Mrs. Hollingsworth embarks on a dreamy odyssey through in which she discovers the things she has and some of the things she lacks in her life, amid a surreal atmosphere in which Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forest, her daughters, her forgotten husband, neighborhood boys, and two petty criminals play a part
