    Cassandra Edwards is a graduate student at Berkeley: gay, brilliant, nerve-wracked, miserable. At the beginning of this novel, she drives back to her family ranch in the foothills of the Sierras to attend the wedding of her identical twin, Judith, to a nice young doctor from Connecticut. Cassandra, however, is hell-bent on sabotaging the wedding.Dorothy Baker's tragicomic novella follows an unpredictable course of events in which her heroine appears variously as conniving, self-aware, pitiful, frenzied, absurd, and heartbroken - at once utterly impossible and tremendously sympathetic. Cassandra reckons with her complicted feelings about the sister who she feels owes it to her to be her alter ego; with her father, a brandy-soaked retired professor of philosophy; and with the ghost of her dead mother, as she struggles to come to terms with the only life she has.

    The elusive narrator of this disconcerting novel is the scion of a decayed aristocratic family from the farther reachers of the defunct Austro-Hungarian Empire. In five psychologically fruaght episodes, he revisits his past, from adolescence to middle age, a period that coincides with the 20th-century's ugliest years. Central to reach episode is what might be called the narrator's Jewish Question. He is no Nazi. To the contrary, heis apolitical, accommodating, cosmopolitan. He has Jewish friends, and Jewish lovers, and their Jewishness is a matter of abiding fascination which blinds him and makes him complicit in the terrible realities of his era. 287p.
