It was the year after Chappaquiddick, and all spring Carmel had watery dreams about the disaster. Now she, Karina and Julianne were escaping the dreary north for a London University hall of residence. Awaiting them was a winter of new preoccupations -- sex, politics, food and fertility -- and a pointless grotesque tragedy of their own.
A coming-of-age story and a piercing look at the social pretensions and youthful betrayals of a Catholic girlhood.
