Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Borzoi Book"--Title page verso.
Formatted Contents Note:
The narrator is Max Morden, a middle-aged Irishman who, soon after his wife's death, has gone back to the seaside town where he spent his summer holidays as a child -- a retreat from the grief, anger, and numbness of his life without her. But it is also a return to the place where he met the Graces, the well -- heeled vacationing family with whom he experienced the strange suddeness of both love and death for the first time. The seductive mother; the imperious father; the twins -- Chloe, fiery and forthright, and Myles, silent and expressionless -- in whose mysterious connection Max became profoundly entangled, each of them a part of the "barely bearable raw immediacy" of his childhood memories.
Summary, etc.:
Following the death of his wife, Max Morden retreats to the seaside town of his childhood summers, where his own life becomes inextricably entwined with the members of the vacationing Grace family.
