Book description
When Sidonie O'Neill and her friend Joyce move into a room in Earl's Court, the neighbourliness of Pam and Lennie Beacon seems too good to be true: the offer of an open larder and a flat warm with drying washing promises a haven from shoe-string meals and disorderly single life. Things take a different turn, however, when both Pam and Lennie begin to court Sidonie's affection. With the fecklessness of youth, she becomes the lover of each of them, unwilling to commit herself to either or to withdraw. Her response to Pam is instant and assured, her liaison with Lennie is an ambivalent one, an arrangement in which afternoons of sex stave off the monotony of jobless days. Caught in a state of limbo, Sidonie veers between the two, heedless of the chaos around her and of Lennie's increasingly obsessive behaviour.....
