(From the publisher):
The novel evokes the fleeting emotions that connect Bonnie, a middle-aged American divorcée, and her daughter, Flor, in an uncomfortable alliance that is played out against the elegant scenery of Venice and Paris. Through the eyes of four different observers, Mavis Gallant examines Flor's gradual deterioration into madness, the aftermath ofa hopeless marriage that was a futile attempt to escape her mother's eccentric tyranny.
