This chapter discusses Nina's move to Switzerland—a move that complicated Lisa's life. “Everything was fine as long as she wasn't around,” Lisa recalled, “and then she decided to come and turn my world upside down.” Lisa resolved to visit her father and find out once and for all if he loved her. Maybe he didn't, but whatever the case, she told Nina, “we gonna get this straight.” When she arrived in New York, Lisa didn't tell Andy she had no return ticket to Switzerland. He thought she was staying three days. On the fifth, she told him she wasn't leaving. Lisa's separation from Nina, on the other hand, had been building over time and marked the beginning of occasional estrangements between mother and daughter that would last more than a decade.
