A writer creates a 'fiction' about her mother; a quiet woman who dies young. Based on the mother's journal (containing a recipe, a line from Proust, little else, and numerous blank pages)as well as faded memory; begins a lightning fast introspective into the mother's (a young woman's) affair with a magnetic, sexy young man during glorious days in Paris. But the story will take a turn, in its own good time, and this same young woman will bear a child and die before her time, living a quiet life in England. How her life is devistated, and how she hides the damage until her early escape into death, is the story. ANITA BROOKNER, the best novelist living today offers no compromise or easy (false) answers. Like her earlier 'ALTERED STATES' this novel will knock you out. Like Arctic turtles, newborn, scrambling for life on the rocky shore where only a few will live; these characters fight for their happiness tho few will make it.
