Iris - the narrator and heroine - guides the listener through 24 episodes from her life, pausing now and then for meditations on love; sex; work; loneliness; insomnia; arctic exploration; cannibalism; the Higgs boson; Greek mythology; memory; costumes parties; time travel; Rocky and Rocky II, V, IV, VI, and III, respectively; literary immortality; real estate trends; and growing up and growing old. Evoking the screwball heroines of a bygone era, as she often finds herself a little lost in her own, Iris ventures blithely into the future, and Smyles collects the flotsam of her past. An encyclopedic, absurd, lyrical, and louche picaresque about that awkward age - between birth and death - when you feel like you don't know at all what you're doing.
