Latest Acclaim

“Phyllis Pancella made the Marquise de Berkenfield into an attractive (rather than repellent) figure who had designs on Sulpice. It was her recognition that the prime imperative in human life is romantic and sexual happiness that caused her to free Marie to marry Tonio. So it all ended in love and riches. What could be better?”
