Deveaux, Harvard professor, is tracking her bad husband, who has vanished again. She finds him holed up in a seedy bar. To sober him up, Deveaux enlists her husband Raf's old friend, an ex-alcoholic, and Raf's new friend, a holistically inclined contortionist stripper. Profanity. Bookseller Inventory # 11752
