Another amazing novel by Mawer. This is only the second book I've read with zero reviews on GR's. I'm really surprised, as Mawer writes intelligent prose & is one of my favorite living authors. I seldom give a plot synopsis in my reviews, since there is no need to duplicate the publisher's or GR's descriptions. But since so little has been said for this one, I'll make an exception.
As with all of Mawer's books, this is multilayered with flashbacks to previous events/times. Helen loses her fat
