fanny, a rape victim, realises her own complicity in her misfortune and then acquiesces in a convenient but unpleasant relationship with a doctor in a large house. the gardener is very fond of his little dog. there are encounters with some louts and an old boy friend. the picaresque character of the novella adds to its humour, sensuality and humanity.
Many of these stories are not for the prudish, squeamish or nervous; while others are humorous, sensitive and full of insight. Compulsive reading! They remain in the mind long after even a first read. The drawings have a wit all of their own and make apt comments on the text.
