Mary Anne Reynolds is a young and vulnerable woman, determined to make her own way in the world.
But Pacific Park, California, in the 1950s is not really the place for Mary.
Her relationship with a black singer offends against the small town's views on sexual mores and exposes its bigoted views on race.
This is a powerful portrayal of the claustrophobia of small-town California, and Mary Anne Reynolds is one of the most memorable characters Dick ever created.
