Louie & Women, originally published by Dutton, is a modern picaresque adventure story of love, obsession, death, music, destiny, and rebirth. It's Todd Walton's third novel, one of his best reviewed.
Louie Cameron, once a successful architect and musician, now a vagabond, is wounded while defending a damsel in distress, which leads him to become entangled in the lives of Andrea, an artist and professor, and her parents, habitués of a remote beach house in northern California. The blossoming of deep love between Louie and Andrea gives Louie the courage to return to Santa Cruz to make peace with Marie, the former love of his life, with unforeseen and startling consequences befalling him every step of his way.
Told in the alternating voices of the four fascinating leading ladies of the tale, Louie & Women is by turns funny, sad, beautiful, mysterious, tragic, and uplifting.
