A bowl of cherries
Daphne and Rex live lives of well-to-do elegance while Rex's brother Stanley scrimps for tobacco and Camp coffee. Rex's daughter has also become a victim; her cruel husband has turned her into an eccentric skivvy. If life is a bowl of cherries, there are always those left with the bruised remnants. "Mackay's writing - adroit, intelligent, and evocative - is a joy." -New York Times "Inventive, insightful, and vigorously entertaining." -Publishers Weekly
