Summary (From the publisher):

A Delicate Balance reveals the emotional savagery of suburbia and the psychological terror of empty lives. Its characters maintain a delicate balance between self-destruction and survival when a bitter 36-year-old daughter returns home to the family nest after the collapse of her fourth marriage. The much wed Julia shatters the uneasy peace of he long-married parents, Agnes and Tobias, and their permanent guest—acerbic, unpredictable, and witty alcoholic sister-in-law Claire. When two lifelong friends gate-crash this impromtu reunion, the masks of civility drop and raw feelings emerge.
