Nineteen-year-old Vivian Morris has just been kicked out of Vassar College in 1940, owing to her lackluster freshman-year performance. Her affluent parents send her to Manhattan to live with her Aunt Peg, who owns a flamboyant, crumbling midtown theater. There Vivian is introduced to an entire cosmos of unconventional and charismatic characters. When Vivian makes a personal mistake that results in professional scandal, it turns her new world upside down in ways that will take her years to fully understand. 
Now eighty-nine years old and telling her story at last, Vivian recalls how the events of those years altered the course of her life-and the gusto and autonomy with which she approached it. "At some point in a woman's life, she just gets tired of being ashamed all the time,"Vivian muses. "After that, she is free to become whoever she truly is."
