About this title

Synopsis:

Louise Brown, a drifting woman of indeterminate age, is devoted to New Orleans' granduer and gentility, especially as embodied in old Mr. Collier, his subject-to-drink older son, and his subject-to-falls younger son

From the Back Cover:

"Claude Collier made the world seem kind", says Louise Brown, beginning a tale of Violent Love, Breakdowns, Moods, and Felonious Drunkenness that floats from one lush, green, sweltering New Orleans evening to another. Returning hone after four years of college in New England ("Among the Yankees I have known", she says, "I only met one who had the grace to apologize to me about the War"), Louise bemusedly finds herself reimmersed in New Orleans society's "wastrel-youth contingent". At the center of this gin-fueled hurricane is Claude, rumpled, accident prone, supremely sweet - and desperate. For Claude, Louise is his steadying focus; for Louise, Claude is the only man who can break her heart "into a million pieces on the floor".
