Kansas in August, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A toe-tapping story of life and its wonderful and unexpected complexities. Hilary is a young, attractive teacher with aspirations to be a tap-dancer.

Henry, his elder sister, is a crisp, professional psychologist.

The unpredictable and unreliable Rufus, a failed pianist, is their lover - whom neither Hilary nor Henry realise they are sharing.

Despite the constant danger of discovery, this unwitting triangle persists, in delicate balance - until, that is, someone new and totally unexpected enters the frame.

Having rescued an abandoned baby boy, found soaked and tearful in a subway, Hilary decides, to his own great surprise, to become a surrogate parent.

Review by

An entertaining story of gender identity between a man named Hilary and a woman named Henry (who are siblings) and they both fall for the same man Rufus. It was a little difficult to keep in mind that Hilary was actually the brother and Henry was the sister, the names alone want you to switch their roles and gender. A dry comedy about their lives as adults and the lies that we tell not only ourselves but also others about who we really are.
