Friends And Relations EPUB
Two sisters, two weddings, just months apart. These marriages produce a tangle of friends, relations and lovers that starts to unravel ten years later, during one intense week.
Two of Bowen s most memorable characters are in attendance: Lady Elfrida, a creature of privilege, and Theodora Thirdman, a gawky teenager with zero self-awareness.
The sunset of prosperity is upon this complacent, moneyed class, but Bowen s precise and beautiful prose pins real pain and comedy upon its inhabitants.
