Summary
Roz, Charis, and Tony--war babies all--share a wound, and her name is Zenia. Zenia is beautiful and smart and hungry, manipulative and vulnerable, needy and ruthless, and the turbulent center of her own never-ending saga. Zenia entered their lives when they were in college, in the sixties; and over the three decades since, she damaged each of them badly, ensnaring their sympathy, betraying their trust, and treating their men as loot. Then Zenia died, or at any rate the three women--with much relief--attended her funeral. But now she's suddenly alive again, sauntering into the restaurant where they are innocently eating lunch.
Summary
The story of three women living in Toronto explores the paradox of woman as villain
