Island of the Sequined Love Nun Summary & Study Guide
It is based partly on the author’s personal experiences in Micronesia. Tucker Case Tuckis a pilot for a cosmetics company, who crashes the company plane while having sex.
This event causes Tuck to be blacklisted from flying in the United States, so he accepts a lucrative offer from a doctor-missionary on a remote Micronesian island to transport cargo to and from the island and Japan. Tuck moves to the island with a Filipino trans woman navigator and a talking fruit bat. There Tuck eventually uncovers a horrible secret harbored by the doctor and his wife, who capitalized on the fact that the island natives are under the influence of a cargo cult that developed as a result of establishment by Allies of an air runway there during World War II.
Tuck is the heir to the Denmark Silverware Corporation, much like Hamlet being the prince. Later Tuck’s mother marries his uncle after her husband has a not-so-accidental riding accident resulting in his death.
Tuck is then summoned by an old girlfriend named Zoophilia similar to Ophelia. While approaching the house in a rage he runs over Zoophilia’s father. Zoophilia meets her demise by taking a handful of Prozac and a mouthful of water then drowns in her hot tub, grief-stricken. Before Tuck leaves he is threatened by Zoophilia’s brother.
