Benny called for a round of Cuba Libres and I gave him some chips to play for me and went to the ladies?_T room and never came back. Somewhere out beyond Hollywood, hollowed-out actress Maria Wyeth?_Ts life plays out in a numbing routine of perpetual freeway driving. In her early thirties, divorced from her husband, dislocated from friends, anesthetized to pain and please, Wheth is a woman who has run out of both desires and motives ?_" the epitome of a generation made ill by too much freedom.
