"In a typical, century-old New Orleans town house, a female strain dominates: Joan Mitchellís mother--five times married with a daughter to show for each marriage--rules the roost casually, and Joan and her prettier, bitchier, younger half-sister, pursuing their pleasures, come and go as they please. But one summer when Joan is twenty she has an affair with a cast-off beau of her sisterís--an affair that has far-reaching consequences, shaking Joanís hold on reality. What develops as she tries to relate what is happening around her to what is happening within and as she moves inevitably toward an irrevocable and cruel act of reprisal is the substance of Miss Grauís gripping story."; 8vo - over 7ĺ" - 9ĺ" tall
