"After leaving her husband and her suffocating marriage for the romance and promise of Rome, the narrator of Duchess of Nothing has her freedom but is still trapped by the routine of life and haunted by her past. Her one source of entertainment is her lover Edmund's seven-year-old brother, a curious and defiant child who becomes the woman's responsibility during her lover's long absences. Spending their days together, they wander the city, simultaneously repelled by and drawn to each other as she teaches him important lessons he would never learn in school. But when Edmund abandons them altogether, the amusing relationship between the narrator and her charge suddenly becomes a necessity and she realizes how much she has come to depend on the boy."--BOOK JACKET.
