Details
J.P. Donleavy's unique sense of satire delivers a novella of comic tragedy which is appropriately both formal and crass. The story follows Jocelyn Jones, a middle-aged woman who inherited her grandmother's southern gentile snobbery, if not the social registry. After her husband goes in search of "fresh flesh" she finds herself divorced and unable to keep up her former lifestyle. Unable to turn to her distant children or former socialite friends, she must make her own way in New York City, in search of a renewal of fortune and a clean restroom.
