A look at the joys, heartbreaks, and absurdities of old age follows feisty Ruth Caster Hubble through her last day alive as she reviews her life and contemplates an insane world

Blackwell North Amer
It is December 1 in southern California, a White Rabbit day, and Ruth, eighty-eight years old, is seeing things. Her husband, Henry - King of the Boobs - is no help, of course, and her granddaughter is shacking up with a maniac against Ruth's best advice. But that furry white bunny hiphopping across her field of vision keeps snickering "Time!" and Ruth has to wonder if hers is up.
Tracking her pinball course through her final day on earth, White Rabbit follows Ruth's progress minute by minute as she devises ever odder routines for coping with the breakdown of her household appliances and her own vital organs and her faith in romantic love. Opening a window onto Ruth's past are her heartbreaking memories of the men in her life, from her withholding first husband to goony, hopeless Henry, who cannot understand her despite his steadfast loyalty.
