Description
A talented, eccentric London family tries to find their place in the world in this semiautobiographical novel by a New York Times -bestselling author. Papa Aubrey's wife and twin daughters, Mary and Rose, are piano prodigies, his young son Richard Quin is a lively boy, and his eldest daughter Cordelia is a beautiful and driven young woman with musical aspirations. But the talented and eccentric Aubrey family rarely enjoys a moment of harmony, as its members struggle to overcome the effects of their patriarch's spendthrift ways. Now they must move so that their father, a noted journalist, can find stable employment. Throughout, it is the Aubreys' hope that art will save them from the cacophony of a life sliding toward poverty. In this eloquent and winning portrait, West's compelling characters must uncover their true talent for kindness in order to thrive in the world that exists outside of their life as a family.
