for Instances of the Number 3
"After Peter handsome died,
people were surprised that his widow seemed to be spending
so much time with his mistress." So begins Salley
Vickers' wonderful exploration of love and relationships.
The author of Miss Garnet's Angel again beguiles with
her breadth of vision and understanding of human feelings
and foibles. Her fiction has a haunting quality - moments
from this story cling to the memory - and just when
you think you see where she's going, there's a surprise.
Instances of the number 3 is an unexpected view of triangles;
the man, his wife and his mistress; his artist, his
model and his art; love, illusion and moral choice;
heaven, hell and purgatory. A witty, ironic, and thoughtful
