This book was referenced in the previous post. I found a lot of meaning in the book and enjoyed the way it mixed past with present. I have friends who do not like the amount of material "borrowed" from Virginia Wolfe's "Mrs. Dalloway" but I found I could live with that. The portion I quote from in my previous post can be found in the paperback version illustrated, on pages 217 and 218. Perhaps you saw the movie with Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore.
