Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written in subtle, elegant prose, this rediscovered classic, first published in 1939, addresses issues of psychology and perception, while pioneering avant-garde narrative techniques
 
When the blind narrator, the masseur Louis Dunkel, moves into the Cornwall country house of his patient Mrs. Nance, he becomes fascinated by her niece Sophie, a haughty young woman. Their resulting romance, however, is unsettled by the arrival of the blind, deaf, and dumb Amity Nance. The introspective Dunkel tries to interpret and negotiate the pitfalls of a difficult and at times hostile environment.
