About this title


A troubled family gather at the ancestral home on the Welsh coast, awkwardly awaiting the death of the family patriarch. Polite conversation gives way to sly remarks and bickering in this tense reunion, and the household's respectable surface is scratched away to expose secret warfare, malicious games and viciously funny class-consciousness. In Alice Thomas Ellis's first novel, the caustic wit, brisk pace, and profound insight she is famous for are displayed to full effect.

From the Publisher:

In Alice Thomas Ellis's first novel, originally published in 1977, a troubled family gathers at a house in Wales, uneasily attending upon the clan's failing patriarch. Ellis's tale is characterized by caustic, startling wit, a spare and intense lyricism, and profound insight into the way eternity haunts quotidian inconsequence.
