KIRKUS REVIEW

A novel of character rather than plot or incident, fastidious in style (this carries through the translation) -- for a limited and discriminating audience. Winner of the America-France Award. By indirection the story of the Aleracs' loss of power and wealth to the grubbing Graews -- and the three cornered battle between the two families, as Jonathan Graew finds his efforts to humiliate his enemies increasingly successful.

Publisher: Harcourt, Brace
