Tweet KIRKUS REVIEW Bainbridge's latest dark farce begins in characteristic form--a spot of middle-class, middle-age adultery, drab and joyless--but gradually spreads itself into something more ambitious, with fuzzier edges and rather fewer laughs than usual.
The unhappy adulterer this time is London lawyer Douglas Ashburner, who tells his wife he's off on a Scotland fishing trip. This being Bainbridge, the expedition is, of course, a disaster.
Nina is ill--and less than adoring--from the start. Ashburner's baggage is lost. In Moscow, their interpreter-guide forces them to circle St. Basil's Cathedral again and again ""'Look,' she commanded"".
The art is awful, the food is worse. But the level of distress soon shifts from comic mishap to simmering Kafka-esque panic. Nina goes off for lunch with a Russian colleague and never returns, as the rest of the party is hustled along to Leningrad is she in hospital? Ashburner begins to hallucinate, seeing Nina everywhere and seeming to have mid-sleep sex with someone on the train.
And by the time the group winds up in hot, dreary Tblisi, Ashburner is ill, sure that Nina's been killed, and apparently under arrest as a spy: And some new readers may be drawn in by the art-world satire and the Russian-tour trimmings.
Overall, however, this is not top-drawer Bainbridge: Still, even so-so Bainbridge is full of talent and pleasure and intelligence; and though veteran fans may be slightly disappointed, newcomers will probably be pleased--and inspired to explore the rest of the rich Bainbridge canon.Our real estate agents in Winter Garden earned an average rating of out of 5 based on their clients' review.
