The story of a wealthy, fiftyish American widow recently a famous stage beauty, but now "drifting." The novel opens soon after her husband's death and her retirement from the theatre, as Mrs. Stone tries to adjust to her aimless new life in Rome. She is adjusting, too, to aging.

With poignant wit and his own particular brand of relish, Williams charts her drift into an affair with a cruel young gigolo.
