About this title

Synopsis:

Part murder mystery, part British parlor drama, and part meditation on Time, Theater, and Love, this novel probes the personalities assembled at a party where the murder of a guest named Roz transforms an ordinary evening

From the Back Cover:

Robert Coover's wicked and surreally comic novel takes place at a chilling, ribald, and absolutely fascinating party. Amid the drunken guests, a woman turns up murdered on the living room floor. Around the corpse, one of several the evening produces, Gerald's party goes on - a chatter of voices, names, faces, overheard gags, rounds of storytelling, and a mounting curve of desire. What Coover has in store for his guests - besides an evening gone mad - is part murder mystery, part British parlor drama, part sly and dazzling meditation of time, theater, and love.
