Marian Cannon Schlesinger's memoir of growing up in an academic household in Cambridge, Massachusetts, tells the story of a community and way of life which have virtually disappeared. Her account of Cambridge characters, local politics, college life, and town-gown confrontations in the early years of the century supplements the core narrative concerning a remarkable family, dominated by high-spirited, independent women. The author also writes about her travels in Italy and China in the 1930s.
