At thirty, Chris Mitchell leads a quiet life of comfortable failure. Sleepwalking through life at the low end of the economic food chain, he bemoans the corporate franchises invading his hometown of Tucson. He tries hard not to think about the military air traffic increasing in the skies above as he commiserates with his friends Anwar, a Muslim alcoholic, and Brad Denton, MD, physician and local champion of assisted suicide. But things suddenly do change. Chrisas gullibility and good looks attract the attention of two very different women: Deborah, a militant lesbian and an old friend of Chrisas, and Vivianne Jeffreys, multi-millionaire business owner and the self-centered daughter of East Coast aold money.a Both women decide that Chrisas powerlessness makes him the ideal candidate to father the children they wish to have ... without the inconvenience of marriage. Is there any hope for humanity in such a McWorld? And as defendant in a Kafkaesque trial prosecuted by a high-dollar corporate attorney, will Chris go down as an Everyman vindicated? Or will he go down in flames? Valley Babies answers that question for Chris ... and for all of us.
