The Big Day (Norton Paperback Fiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Donald Cuthbertson prided himself on being a model for his students and teachers, but he had lately begun to lose his focus. Degree Day is approaching, along with a birthday party for his wife, Lavinia, who is not going quietly into middle age. Her lavish costume party provides the revelers with a darkly comic resolution to romantic dalliance and political intrigue.

Synopsis:

It was a big day for Cuthbertson's Regional School, and it would go off like a bomb.
