FAMILY AFFAIR by Mary Fassell Hunt


Email this review


Slow torment in the south (Birmingham), this pursues precisely some weeks in the lives of a few indecisively inclined neurotics, and particularly a breaking-up point in the marriage, of Lily and Merth Corwin. Lily for fifteen year has subordinated North to her desire (but inability) to write, has worried him, wrangled with him, until she finds her marriage jeopardized when Merth turns to Cele, who offers sensual ease and relaxation. She sticks by -- sees him through an ulcer operation -- returns Cele to her own husband- and faces the future with their marriage more assured. For women largely.
