Hope fills the air and everyone smells it, including Rod, the burned-out club pro who only needs one more shot at the tour- Glen L., the clubs senile mule-collecting founder- Brenda, the religion-scarred torch singer with a weakness for dangerous men- and Bev, the adulterous snack-bar manager who cant quite wake up to the fact that shes married to a man whose sole source of income is the sale of stolen golf carts. Theirs is a world of guests trying feverishly to be members, despite the fact that the gap between their dreams and their lives has become so vast that hope has begun to seem ridiculous- a world of people desperate to become more human, or at least to find out what that word means. It is a world brought to life with a sort of eerie, knife-edged brilliance not found in American fiction since Sherwood Andersons Winesburg, Ohio.
