Emma isn't sure what to do with her life. She isn't sure what her Shakespeare professor wants from her, even after they get married. Even after he dies. Their country estate becomes a kind of prison. Then Geraldine appears. She kills the cat, aims for thestable boy, sleeps in the trees, and brags about sleeping with her boss. But she's the best thing that ever happened to Emma.

This edition also contains haunting black and white photographs of the Pennsylvania wilderness where most of the story takes place.
