Product Description:

Set in war-time London, this book is probably the nearest thing to a novel of suspense that Elizabeth Bowen has written.

Review:

"Imagine a Graham Greene thriller projected through the sensibility of Virginia Woolf." --The Atlantic Monthly

"[Bowen] startles us by sheer originality of mind and boldness of sensibility into seeking our world afresh. . . . Out of the plainest things--the drawing of a curtain--she can make something electric and urgent." --V. S. Pritchett
"Dense as a poem with symbol and suggestion. . . . The work of a writer [of] rich and winning gifts." --Time

"Miss Bowen [has] power to evoke, suggest and explore down oblique and little-frequented avenues the mysterious centers of human conduct." --The New York Times
