Madness, cruelty, and sexuality permeate the household in which Lilian Una Singer is raised-an upper-crust Victorian world of teacups and servants. But Lilian, shielded by layers of fat, an iron will, and an indomitable spirit, has her sights set on an education, love, and-finally-her own transcendent forms of independence.

The description above is certainly accurate, but doesn't convey how marvellously written the narrative is of an eccentric, wounded, but still upbeat woman from her strange childhood through old age. The author captures the world through the child's eyes and never loses the mastery of character and words she shows in this and in her other works.
