Combining glittering wit, an atmosphere dense in social paranoia, and a breathtaking elegance and precision of language, Whites first novel suggests a hilarious apotheosis of the comedy of manners. For, on the privileged island community whereForgetting Elenatakes place, manners are everything. Or so it seems to Whites excruciatingly self-conscious young narrator who desperately wants to be accepted in this world where everything from ones bathroom habits to the composition of spontaneous poetry is subject to rigid conventions.
