Immortalized in Lucien Freud's "The Girl In Bed," Caroline Blackwood was a writer of exceptional talent, charaterized by a dark outlook and deep skepticism. This is the writer's first book, published just after her marriage to Robert Lowell. The collection is divided into sections of stories (FICTION) reportage (FACT) and reminiscences (ULSTER,) all written "with a kind of appalled wit that never fails to illuminate the realities."
