Franklin is a construction worker who says he's tired of women and their demands. Zora is a struggling singer who also claims to have lost interest in romance. But when these hard-shelled survivors cross paths, the outcome is electricand perplexing. Beyond the joy of sex, Franklin and Zora see the possibility of a solid, lasting relationship; the trouble is, they're far from sure of how to get there.
Disappearing Acts is a different kind of love story: frank and unsentimental, often uproariously funny, and graced throughout with moments of rare, hard-earned wisdom.
This is a story of love between Zora, an independent, aspiring singer, and Franklin, a sometimes-employed carpenter. Life has been unkind to these star-crossed lovers, but they're both survivors. Despite an abundance of flash and energy, this book lacks the depth and breadth to which McMillan aspires.
