Also part of Esme's ménage are her two daughters, Cressida, who, having had a series of affairs with married men, is about to fall dramatically in love with Felix, and Emma, who has just met an odd poet from the lower classes, Daniel, and is about to fall for him in a similarly ton-of-bricks way.
Everyone turns up for a weekend at Esme's comfortable country house and it is all terribly fraught. In a certain kind of novel the word `vulgar' is used to denote anything modern or working class, and it comes up, amusingly (not intentionally) here, in relation to things like television sets. Apart from the odd anachronism like that, this is, however, rather an unexpectedly good novel. One cannot care too much about the sluttish Cressida, but Esme herself has pathos, and Emma is nicely bold and virginal by turns. All in all, a cracking good read.
