This novel of the theater scene in 1950s Liverpool follows a young actress who becomes romantically involved with a director.
Lynn Freed. . .Bainbridge uses a repertory theater company in Liverpool in the 1950's as the stage for her heroine's grimy coming of age. . . .While the strength of this novel lies in its realism, its clever prose, its faithfully drawn scenery, its memorable vignettes, there is, in the end, something too intended in the story, something missing from the book. What it lacks, perhaps, is reverberation. -- The New York Times
