Summary
Harmony is a Las Vegas showgirl. At night she's a lead dancer in a gambling casino; during the day she raises peacocks. She's one of a dying breed of dancers, faced with fewer and fewer jobs and an even bleaker future. Yet she maintains a calm cheerfulness in that arid neon landscape of supermarkets, drive-in wedding chaples, and all-night casinos. While Harmoney's star is fading, her beautiful, cynical daughter Pepper's is on the rise. But Harmony remains wistful and optomistic through it all. She is the unexpected blossom in the wastland, the tough and tender desert rose
