Summary :

In a beleaguered city where rats and roving gangs terrorize the streets, where government has broken down and meaningless violence holds sway, a woman middle-aged and middle-class is brought a twelve-year-old girl and told that it is her responsibility to raise the child. This book, which the author has called "an attempt at autobiography," is that woman's journal a glimpse of a future only slightly more horrendous than our present, and of the forces that alone can save us from total destruction.
