Overview

After leaving her husband and her suffocating marriage for the romance and promise of Rome, the narrator of Duchess of Nothing has her freedom but is still trapped by the routine of life and haunted by her past. Charming, manic, and acutely aware of her own precarious grasp on the world around her, the narrator speaks with a kind of absurd logic that makes the book impossible to put down.

turtlesleap on LibraryThing More than 1 year ago
The narrator, unnamed, find herself abandoned by her lover and left to care for his 7-year old brother. The narration reveals a woman so pathetic, so useless that the child, who is far more responsible than she, winds up being much more the caretaker. The story, such as it is, was tedious and, as far as I could determine, pointless. Not recommended.
