Fri frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.Even as little girls, Sarah and Emily are very different from each other. Emily looks up to her wiser and more stable older sister and is jealous of her relationship with their absent father, and later her seemingly golden marriage. The path she chooses for herself is less safe and conventional and her love affairs never really satisfy her. Although the bond between them endures, gradually the distance between the two women grows, until a tragic event throws their relationship into focus one last time.

A brave, brilliant book * Sunday Herald * One of the United States' finest post-war novelists and short-story writers.He wrote some of the best fiction of his generation; it continues to give pleasure to all those readers who are fortunate enough to discover it * Independent * Few men since Flaubert have offered such sympathy to women whose lives are hell -- Kurt Vonnegut [The Easter Parade is] Richard Yates' best novel, which makes it wonderful. From the first sentence to the last...I loved the book -- Joan Didion Poignant tale... His tales are wonderfully gloomy and self-referential. -- Jancis Robinson * Waitrose Weekend *
