"One of the sharpest observers of human behavior around."—Booklist (starred review)
BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF SIRACUSA, coming in trade paperback on June 6, 2017!
Tracee is a runaway bride and kleptomaniac. Lana's an audacious beauty, a recovering alcoholic. Rita is a holy-roller minister's wife, desperate to escape her marriage. One warm summer's night, these three women go on the lam together. Their car breaks down on a rural highway in North Carolina and they're forced to seek shelter in a seemingly abandoned nightclub. Which is where they meet Marcel. And soon everything changes. Marcel, you see, is a lion.
Written with the deftness, humor, and sparkling wit that mark her books, plays, and movies, Delia Ephron's The Lion Is In is an unforgettable story of friendship, courage, love—and learning to salsa with the king of the jungle.

"Tracee, Lana, and Rita are on the run, each escaping from a messy situation. When their car runs off the road in the middle of the night, they break into a country bar and are astonished to find it's home to a caged full-grown lion. Narrator Natasha Lyonne gives the women distinct voices that project a delightful mix of spunk and sass. Lyonne's skill at conveying a broad range of emotions is showcased in this amusing story of mixed-signals, deep friendship, and personal growth. From sweet-talking the bar owner into giving them jobs to deep soul-searching and letting go of destructive secrets, Tracee, Lana, and Rita find courage and redemption, thanks to their special bond with Marcel the lion.
