Bainbridge's last novel was completed after her death by her publisher and as a result, the reader is left with some nagging, unanswered questions. At the end of the book is a reproduction of a newspaper article about a girl in a polka dot dress present at Robert Kennedy's assassination. Dark humour and somewhat odd, but nevertheless worth reading.

The last book from the wonderful Beryl Bainbridge. Her passing is a great loss, but she has left her legacy of quirky, imaginative tales of the twentieth century for us to remember her by.
