The noted translator's uncommon first novel, published the same year as the London edition. Set in a small town on the east coast of Scotland, it examines its conventions and restrictions, especially pertaining to women. "Willa Muir [was] one of the finest and fiercest intellectuals of her generation. Her writing is rich with paradox - although obsessively Scottish in subject and style, she resented Scotland; although a trenchant champion of feminism, she voluntarily sacrificed her identity to that of the poet's wife ; and although she was a committed reformer, she never aligned herself with any political or ideological movement. These passionate dichotomies are intertwined in her writing, giving a particular power to her fiction and non-fiction alike." - from the 1987 reprint in the Canongate classics series.
