Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"One day, Annabel saw the sun and moon in the sky at the same time. The sight filled her with a terror which entirely consumed her … for she had no instinct for self-preservation if she was confronted by ambiguities."

Annabel and Lee are married; Lee and Buzz are brothers. A quirky threesome, they have set up a household on the fringes on university life in the late sixties. Their hermetic existence is filled with drugs, sex, alchohol, intensity, and madness; their relationships with one another are haunting and complex.

Carter's compelling tale carries echoes of Poe and Bronte into the very modern world of artists' flats, psychiatrists' offices, and generational conflicts. It is ultimately a tale of the search for loyalty and love in the midst of emotional starvation.

Synopsis:

Annabel, an artist adrift in the political and sexual crosscurrents of the 1960s and the whirling undertow of her own mind, falls into marriage with the blithely adulterous Lee. Before long, her relationship leads to obsession, betrayal, deceit, voyeurism, violence, and suicide.
