“An elegantly written comedy of manners, constructed around serious ideas—ideas jovially and sometimes outrageously explored by a group of civilized people. . . .It has been a long time since so much sparkling, quirky talk has appeared in an American novel. . . .This novel is a pure, a rare delight.” —Eugenia Thornton, —Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Shines with elusive insights about persons we recognize at once as acquaintances and friends, caught briefly in events that are part of their upper-class life, part of their inevitable sexual prisons, part of their middle age. To be able to say consistently interesting things about these embroilments—class, sex, age—is a triumph for a novelist. Cynthia Propper Seton has pulled off just such a triumph.” —Doris Grumbach, Los Angeles Times
