Overview

In the words of New York : "Miss Hellman is contemplating the meaning of middle age to an assorted group of people gathered together in a summer home� All of them are in one way or another frustrated and unhappy.

But when they come to see themselves, they realize that man is the sum of his past life, that they are incapable of any real revolt against their past, and that what they have made of themselves in earlier years is what they are when age approaches�Nor are they tragic figures. All of them are troubled average people, human, commonplace�but they are studied with great understanding and a touch of intelligently unsentimental compassion."
