Kate and Baba are in London, playing out the tragicomedy of their married lives to its surprisingly level-headed conclusion. Kate, feeling trapped in her grey stone house with her increasingly cold husband, tearfully looks for her dreams of romance elsewhere. And when Eugene takes terrible, implacable revenge, she naturally turns to her brazen friend Baba for help. But Baba, the bored trophy wife of builder Frank, vulgarly flashing his wealth and ignorance to the world, has her own problems without Kate drooping self-pityingly over her. And both women find unsuspected qualities in themselves as they learn to face reality.

The last book in the 'Country Girls' Trilogy, which began with 'The Country Girls' and was followed by 'Girl with Green Eyes'.

    " she just tears your heart out and makes you like it - this is real feminist literature. "

    " Edna O'Brien writes the lives of Irish women with the romance surgically removed. The bliss of the title is entirely ironic. "

    " Well written but so, so depressing. "

    " I found this Edna O'Brien quite dated and not that interesting. It probably made more of a splash when it was written in 1964. "
