You all get out of my head! I was just thinking of who should should be in the movie version of this book while I was reading it this afternoon - and I even thought of Terence Howard as Charles, DesertRose!
I see maybe Philip Seymour Hoffman as Bennet...Queen Latifah as Bethany... and Ludacris (can't remember his real name but he was fabulous in Crash) as Ricky. I'm drawing a blank at Clarance and Narciss - I sort of like Halle Berry as Narciss but I think maybe she's *too* pretty. I picture Narciss as being a more intellectual-type beauty.
