Library Journal Review

The first part of this work is a fine mystery novella based on Kennedy's experiences in London in the Sixties. Set in the theater world, it concerns confused identities and the author's own search for a clearer sense of self as she considers what she knows about her estranged (and possibly dead) mother. Most interesting is the interplay with the autobiographical form, a relationship made more obvious when the novel is considered in relation to the journal section. Here, Kennedy offers sketches of the theater, film, and music people she met and befriended during her London years. These sketches fortify the first section by suggesting its historical basis.-- Jean Keleher, Wally Findlay Galleries, Chicago (c) Copyright 2010.
