From the Publisher:
Annabel, an artist adrift in the political and sexual crosscurrents of the 1960s and the whirling undertow of her own mind, falls into marriage with the blithely adulterous Lee. Before long, her relationship leads to obsession, betrayal, deceit, voyeurism, violence, and suicide.
"One day, Annabel saw the sun and moon in the sky at the same time. The sight filled her with a terror which entirely consumed her ? for she had no instinct for self-preservation if she was confronted by ambiguities."

Annabel and Lee are married; Lee and Buzz are brothers. A quirky threesome, they have set up a household on the fringes on university life in the late sixties. Their hermetic existence is filled with drugs, sex, alchohol, intensity, and madness; their relationships with one another are haunting and complex.

Carter's compelling tale carries echoes of Poe and Bronte into the very modern world of artists' flats, psychiatrists' offices, and generational conflicts. It is ultimately a tale of the search for loyalty and love in the midst of emotional starvation.

Annabel, her husband Lee, and Lee's brother, Buzz, comprise an odd threesome living a drug-and-alcohol-tinged existence in a university town in the 60s.
Author Bio
Angela Carter
Carter grew up in London in a middle-class family, and studied medieval literature at the University of Bristol. She was married in 1960 and divorced in 1972, after which she began to travel extensively, living in Japan for two years. In addition to writing novels and short stories, Carter was a journalist, a visiting professor at various universities, and a writer of children's books, plays, screenplays, and verse. Most of her works combine magic realism with violence and eroticism.
