Entre jeunesse passée et maturité future (cf. p. 183). Premier roman de l'auteur du ##Testament à l'anglaise##. L'oeuvre est centrée sur les désillusions de l'héroïne, une jeune fille de 18 ans, discrète et suicidaire, d'origine modeste qui, après cinq ans et neuf mois de mariage, constate qu'elle a "commis une grossière erreur" (p. 100). Comme l'écrit l'éditeur, J. Coe se livre à "une descente en flammes de toutes les institutions prisées dans la société" (anglaise et plus largement occidentale) et "des formes couramment admises du bonheur". En diverses occasions, le lecteur est interpellé par le narrateur. [SDM]
