Lou is sick and must stay connected to IV's, but Rhea and Jocelyn obey Lou's request to bring him outside to the pool. Lou, Rhea, and Jocelyn have a conversation about Lou's son, Rolph's, death, which happened when Rolph was only twenty-eight years old. This topic triggers anger in Jocelyn as she and Rolph were very close in age. Jocelyn tries to drown Lou in the pool but ends up letting him surface. The ending scene is of Lou, Rhea, and Jocelyn in the pool as Lou is appreciating his last moments of life. In this chapter, Ted Hollander is in Naples searching for his nineteen year old niece Sasha, who has been lost for two years. Ted thinks back to Sasha's troubling childhood during his search for her and remembers her early exposure to drugs and violence. While in Naples, Ted takes advantage of his artistic surroundings and visits the National Museum. When Ted finally finds her, he discovers that she is a kleptomaniac, struggling to pay rent.

The Gold Cure Bennie is struggling to find success with Stop/Go, a band that is made up of middle-aged sisters from a nunnery in Westchester, NY that is trying to make a deal with Bennie's company, Sow Ear's Records. Bennie is forty four years old and is recently divorced from Stephanie. At this point in the story, Chris is nine years old and Sasha is still working for Bennie. Bennie has developed a strange addiction to leaves of gold, as he believes it will help boost his declining sex-drive. The chapter ends with Bennie confessing his admiration for Sasha after Bennie, Sasha, and Chris's trip to visit the Stop/Go sisters. Chapter 8
Selling the General Two years before this chapter, Dolly Peale had been referred to as La Doll and owned a very successful PR company in New York City. During an event gone wrong on New Year's Eve, La Doll's fame vanished. She was arrested and ended up having to distribute her earnings to all of the party guests that were harmed by her mistake. Dolly's job post-prison is convincing the public that General B., a man that was accused of mass genocide, is innocent. An idea she has for this project is to take a picture of the opinionated, yet hurt, Kitty Jackson and General B. embracing. But, on Jackson, Lulu (Dolly's nine year old daughter), and Dolly's visit to General B., Kitty Jackson expresses her hate for General B. openly. Horrified, General B. and his assistant take Jackson hostage and ship Lulu and Dolly back to the US. Lulu and Dolly moved out of the city where Dolly opened her own gourmet shop and Lulu settled into the local public school. Chapter 5
