Iris Chase, married at eighteen to a politically prominent industrialist, but now eighty-two and poor, is living in Port Ticonderoga, a town dominated by her once-prosperous family. While bewailing her unreliable body and deriding those who try to help her, Iris reflects on her far from exemplary life and her perilous times, particularly on the events surrounding her sister Laura’s mysterious, tragic early death.
