Abstract:

An account of the troubles that befall a young girl when her parents' marriage collapses. Erlene Glace, a New Zealand schoolgirl, stops speaking altogether shortly after her father Edward leaves the family to settle in England. Vera, Erlene's mother, convinces Edward to return, and he travels home in the hope that his daughter's malady is reversible. A weird allegory that offers no obvious interpretation.... Vera is the mother and a mental patient who has willed herself sightless, Erlene, her daughter, has ceased to speak, and Edward, the husband and father, has taken refuge in a distant land. Beyond this is a mind that has burst the confines of everyday individual consciousness and invented its own tormented reality. --Amazon.com & cgi.ebay.com.
