Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Hargus Beesley is so afraid that his mother will get up off her sickbed and wander over to their Vermont barn that he is unable to do more than snuggle briefly with his long-suffering girlfriend, Lisa. Understandably impatient with his mother fixation and eager to get on with life, Lisa runs off to New York. Now it is years later, and mom is happily buried. Hargus books a room in a cheap hotel in New York and begins looking for his intended. The utterly naive and clueless lout gets a leg-up in his search when he runs into the flamboyantly gay Julius Marlboro, and though it doesn't seem like he's ever going to find Lisa, he does meet some colorful characters.
