Friends And Relations, Paperback Book

Description

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.
