Summary
No one steps up to life's banquet, holds out her tray, and orders, "Grief, please!" But as a child, Candy Pekkala was served a heaping helping of it. Every buffet line has a dessert section, however, and when a cousin calls with a Hollywood apartment to sublet, it seems as though Candy is finally offered something sweet
Summary
Follows the story of a young woman named Candy Pekkala from the Twin Cities in the 1970s who moves to Hollywood to follow her dream of becoming a stand-up comedian
