A Slipping Down Life is the story of Evie Decker, the second-fattest girl in the Pulqua, N.C., high school, and her unlikely romance with Drumstrings Casey, a small-time rock singer playing in a country roadhouse. With cool and affecting understatement, Anne Tyler portrays the relationship of these two lonely, incomplete, incongruous individuals drawing together: Casey--moody, sulky, with a bullheaded kind of ambition- Evie--utterly unmusical but immersed in the waves of the rock and soul and pop that pour unceasingly out of her cracked radio to fill the empty hours at home.The desperate tactics Evie employs to attract Caseys attention, their brief non-courtship, and its surprising result are told with compassionate grace in a novel that is off-beat, funny, and immensely touching.(From the inside flap.)
