Anna Madrigal, the legendary transgender landlady of 28 Barbary Lane, she embarks on a road trip that will take her deep into her past.
Now ninety-two, and committed to the notion of leaving like a lady, Mrs. Madrigal has seemingly found peace with her logical family in San Francisco: her devoted young caretaker Jake Greenleaf; her former tenant Brian Hawkins and his daughter Shawna; and Michael Tolliver and Mary Ann Singleton, who have known and loved Anna for nearly four decades.
Some members of Anna s family are bound for the otherworldly landscape of Burning Man, the art community in Nevada s Black Rock Desert where 60,000 revelers gather to construct a city designed to last only one week.
Anna herself has another destination in mind: a lonely stretch of road outside of Winnemucca where the 16-year-old boy she once was ran away from the whorehouse he called home.
With Brian and his beat-up RV, she journeys into the dusty troubled heart of her Depression childhood to unearth a lifetime of secrets and dreams and attend to unfinished business she has long avoided.
