Description


Descendant of a great American plutocratic dynasty, Aldrich makes a dazzling debut with a mordantly funny, sometimes shocking true story of bohemian neglect amid the ruins of a once prominent family.

About the Author


Alexandra Aldrich lived at Rokeby, the house at the heart of this story, until she left to attend boarding school at the age of fourteen. She later moved to Poland, where she studied violin and history, and then back to the United States, where she taught high school English and converted to Orthodox Judaism.
