Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Over the pictures, the vases, the old brown plush rocking-chairs and the stool, over the three gilt chairs, over the new chintz-covered easy chair and the gray velure sofa—over everything everywhere, was the familiar coating of smoke and grime.... Yet here was not fault of housewifery; the curse could not be lifted, as the ingrained smudges permanent on the once white woodwork proved. The grime was perpetually renewed; scrubbing only ground it in.

    I've never seen a book of fiction printed this way. Quite unique.

    I found the story often amusing, though sometimes hard to follow. Poor Mr. Adams was beset with health and spousal issues, but he is fortunate to have an understanding employer. His daughter, the star of this show, has to grow up. It can be difficult, but it works out.

    This could easily be quite depressing, but the writing is light.
