"... tells the story of the marriage of the Camberleys: Harry, a somewhat obvious, limited, successful young man, and Eve who is charming, uncertain, and a preposterous pathological liar. From the start of their marriage - in England - and Harry's adaptation to Eve's impossible inventions, this follows them to the Riviera where for the first time the stories stop, as Eve has an experience which makes reality more desirable than the dream; and finally back to England, and a bitter brush with the truth which drives Eve to an attempted suicide."--Kirkus
