The Distinguished Guest Paperback
by Sue Miller
At the age of seventy-two, Lily Roberts became a national celebrity on writing her first book - a spiritual memoir.
But her new-found fame was not well received by her son Alan and wayward daughter Clary, both profoundly disturbed by Lily's intimate revelations about her married life.
Ten years on their resentment is still raw, and when Lily, now ill and frail, comes to live with Alan, the bitter legacy of their very different memories threatens to upset the precarious balance of their lives.
