Summary
All the News I Need probes the modern American response to inevitable, ancient riddles - of love and sex and mortality. Frances Ferguson is a lonely sharp-tongued widow who lives in the wine country. Oliver Gaffney is a painfully shy gay man who guards a secret and lives out equally lonely days in San Francisco. Friends by default, Fran and Ollie nurse the deep anomie of loss and the creeping, animal betrayal of aging. Each loves routine but is anxious that life might be passing by. To crack open this stalemate, Fran insists the two trave together to Paris. The aftermath of their funny bittersweet journey suggest those small changes, within our reach, that may help us save ourselves - somewhere toward the end
