Rate this:
Still unattached and childless at fifty-nine, world-renowned anthropologist Gray Kaiser is seemingly invincible and untouchable. Returning to make a documentary at the site of her first great triumph in Kenya, she is accompanied by her faithful middle-aged assistant, Errol McEchern, who has loved her for years in silence. When sexy young graduate assistant Raphael Sarasola arrives on the scene, Gray is captivated and falls hopelessly in love before an amazed and injured Errol s eyes. As he follows the progress of their affair with jealous fascination, Errol watches helplessly from the sidelines as a proud and fierce woman is reduced to miserable dependence through subtle, cruel, and calculating manipulation. Exotic and inventive. . . . It is hard not to admire the breadth and consistency of Lionel Shriver s inventiveness and the exuberance of her imagination. New York Times Book Review Lionel Shriver is a vastly talented writer. . . . This book deserves to be read. Kansas City Star"
