KIRKUS REVIEW

An actress writes the story of her young passion, set against a stage background which she has inherited and is forced into accepting as her own, as a means to hold the love of the man she marries. Almost she throws it all over for a new love -- and this is the story she tells. Years later, the manuscript is given to a writer, who incorporates it into his own story. They meet -- and barely recognize that theirs was the love so vaunted. A mature and thoughtful book, full of ""theatre"", interpretation and theory; fascinating for a limited and discriminating audience.
