KIRKUS REVIEW

The tale of the wandering wanton, whose character contains no glimmer of human decency, whose driving force through successive incarnations is the lure of sex, whether used as bait to wreck the lives of a Swiss household, or to disrupt a happy below stairs kingdom, or to inject suspicion of lesbianism into a normal girl's adolescence, or to out-tart the tarts of the Gold Coast- Jennie sweeps her callous way. An odd tale, told on four levels of time, 1928, 1847, 1927, 1882,- England and Europe and America- virtually four novellas woven together by the insidious Jennie, harlot supreme, whose spirit continues to attempt to escape and find freedom. M.F.K. Fisher has a unique gift, if one that is sybaritic, ultra-sophisticated, and for that market.
