Seven short stories are in this compilation. The lead story is:
“Miss Lucy Parker”
Miss Lucy Parker is a prim, proper elderly lady. When a Volkswagen Beetle – the new kind, and pink – PINK! – turns onto the winding road that leads to Lucy’s farmhouse, Lucy is sure the car’s occupants are lost. And that the car probably contains hippies, because hippies drive Volkswagen Beetles. Lucy plans to tell the hippies to get lost. She has no need for their odd speech, beads and marijuana aroma. Except hippies are not in the car. A woman is, a woman wearing a short, blood-red dress that hugs her body. Thus begins Lucy Parker’s great adventure.
