This novel is an anatomy of a midlife crisis - Clint Bunsen, 60 years old, suddenly discovers that he is not who he thought he was for most of his life, and he yearns to make a change. A mail-order DNA test reveals that he is not a stodgy Norwegian, but rather, a hot-blooded Spaniard, and he is determined to live up to his new found heritage. He is chairing his last Independence Day parade, a responsibility he has taken seriously for 6 years, striving to create a newsworthy production. He is, literally, swept off his feet by the charms of Miss Pflame, a 28-year-old psychic who makes him believe that all things are possible. This is a fun, quick read, with Garrison Keillor in the surprising role of erotic writer - well done..
