Sintesi dell'editore

Auchincloss' tale of a New York family dynasty opens with the suicide of Geraldine Brevoort, a woman whose pride and envy fed her alcoholism and kept her alone, and leads the listener through an odyssey, told in flashbacks by Geraldine's plain yet bright cousin, Ida, and Ida's husband, Derrick - also Geraldine's lover, unbeknownst to Ida - and other family members. What unfolds is the story of the intertwining lives of families from different ethnic and social backgrounds, and the misapprehensions that result when such families are brought together through love, marriage, and adultery.

Great book, dated recording

At first I didn’t think I would be able to listen to this because the quality of the recording is crackly and feels dated, but once I got into the story, I only felt it added to the charm of a story written 50 years ago and set in the first half of the 20th century.

Portrait in Brownstone

I enjoyed the plot, but it was too wordy--was the editor too impressed that the Author is one of Jackie Kennedy's cousins?
