Who Was Changed And Who Was Dead Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series


At the beginning of June the river floods, ducks swim through the drawing-room windows and Ebin Willowd rows his daughters round the submerged garden.

The grandmother dresses in magenta for her seventy-first birthday whist drive and looks forward to the first prize of pate de fois gras.

Later Ives the gardener leads a morose procession up river, dragging her to a funeral in a black-draped punt.

The miller goes mad and drowns himself and a cottage is set alight.

Villagers keep dying and at the house on a river, plates are thrown across the luncheon table and a tortoise through a window.

The newspaper asks 'Who will be smitten by the fatal madness next?'
