Overview

Meet Roy, a widower visiting his wife's family for a summer holiday with his young daughter. Imagine his confusion: he finds his wife's sister Miranda suddenly alluring; discovers a nefarious plot by Miranda's preppy boyfriend to evict her and her mother from their home by the ocean; and collides with pugilistic European tourists. Imagine the stumbling in and out of bedrooms and boathouses, the thrown clocks whizzing by, the rowboats taken for romantic rides on the night tide! Part elegy and part bedroom farce, this novella is funny, sad, lushly written, and in the end: indescribable.
