Whether careening through town propelling cars like long-range missiles, or laying waste to a costumed July Fourth parade, Wheezie and Juts Hunsenmeir are Runnymede's most irrepressible, mule-headed sister act. Together these unrivaled Southern siblings cheerfully raise hell- and a hell of a family- among some of the most colorful townsfolk you're ever likely to meet. Chief among them is elegant Celeste Chalfonte. As exquisite as she is fearless, Celeste kills a man and marries a woman, sloe-eyed Ramelle Bowman. And when Ramelle has Curtis Chalfonte's child, no one bats an eye- even though Ramelle has no intention of leaving her beloved Celeste. Then there's Fanny Jump Creighton who runs a speakeasy in her mansion. And activist Fairy Thatcher, who disappears into Hitler's Germany. Through it all run Wheezie and Juts, heading pell-mell into the future with their hands firmly gripped around each other's throats. Spanning more than fifty years of the tumultuous twentieth century, Six of One is a joyous celebration of the human spirit- and the ties binding even the unlikeliest families.
