The scene is Naples, against whose ancient and fantastic background the modern action takes place.

Among the protagonists is Jenny, young and pretty, who has come to Naples in flight from a sombre drama, unaware that a larger drama waits her there.

She has an introduction to a Neapolitan woman, and one day she idly follows it up. This is her leap through the looking glass.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Miss Hazzard's mind is a revolving light that picks a scene, holds it in utmost clarity for a moment against the surrounding darkness and moves on * New York TIMES *
Shirley Hazzard achieves an extraordinary density of tone in this slim little book, which is as poised and vivid today as when it was first published in 1970 * IRISH TIMES *
