Publisher Comments:

At thirty-five, Mary Frazier Armstrong, called "Frazier" by friends and enemies alike, is a sophisticated woman with a thriving art gallery, a healthy bank balance, and an enviable social position.In fact, she has everything to live for, but she's lying in a hospital bed with a morphine drip in her arm and a life expectancy measured in hours."Don't die a stranger," her assistant says on her last hospital visit."Tell the people you love who you are."And so, as her last act on earth, Frazier writes letters to her closest family and friends, telling them exactly what she thinks of them and, since she will be dead by the time they receive the letters, the truth about herself: she's gay.

The letters are sent.Then the manure hits the fan in Charlottesville, Virginia, because the funny thing is, Frazier Armstrong isn't going to die after all.

Synopsis:

Supposedly terminally ill, Mary Frazier Armstrong writes letters to family and friends, telling them exactly what she thinks of them and that she is a lesbian, and then she receives horrible news--she will live after all. Reprint.
