A modern Isle of Lesbos — a sun-drenched Sodom just an hour from Manhattan
From the back:
Dinny was witty, gay, flip and almost fiercely casual. She was faithful to one girl at a time and was a wonderful lover until an affair threatened to involve her emotionally. Then she shied away, broke off the relationship quickly and cleanly. Usually there was no trouble, but when she told Gail, exquisite, clinging Gail, that they were through, Gail refused to accept it. There was trouble aplenty — and black tragedy — before Dinny learned to face herself and assume the responsibilities that love imposes.
