This singular novel, Deeds of Thyda, began with the title character's name. Bill had no idea where it came from or what he could do with it. As a result, the plot evolved practically on its own. As it turned out, Thyda's story is that of a young college woman dropout, a member of a privileged family in a small town, whose life follows the premise wherein ordinary citizens of her town spend their lives pursuing cheap "thrills." On her return from college, she takes up company with a young man with whom she develops a scandalous relationship with Thyda and her immediate family members. Thyda's secondary relationship develops around a young-woman--a lawyer, who takes on the management of Thyda's estate.
