A funny, quotable novel from the 1976. Dry as a good Champagne. Like her contemporaries Joan Didion and Roland Barthes, Adler has a talent for aphorism, coupled with wry, Austen-like observations of her class of Americans at home and abroad.

Stream of consciousness can only take a reader so far, no matter how well crafted the pieces are. Did not finish the book.
