A Comic Novel About a Matter of Life and Birth or, Bioethics--Texas Style! Wanda Louise Ledbetter-thirteen, "white trash," orphaned, mad, and too smart for her own good--is eyeballing every man leaving the doctors' entrance of the big hospital in Dallas. Perched on her mama's rusted-out Cadillac, she's been there all afternoon--ever since her stepfather, Harley, drunk and abusive after her mother's funeral, yelled out the secret nobody was ever supposed to know: Wanda's daddy wasn't her daddy, and not even her dead mama ...
