'I am not, at heart, a jumper. I think I knew all the time I was sizing up the bridge that the strong possibility was I'd attend my sister's wedding'Cassandra Edwards is driving home to her family's Californian ranch to attend the wedding of her beloved identical twin, Judith. A graduate student at Berkeley, Cassandra is gay, brilliant, nerve-racked, miserable - and hell-bent on making sure her sister's wedding doesn't happen.Armed with a clutch bag full of pills, an unquenchable thirst for brandy, and an uncompromising vision for how she and Judith should live, over the course of the next couple of days, Cassandra unravels.First published in 1962, Cassandra at the Wedding is a classic of twentieth century American literature, with a cast of characters you won't be able to forget.'Modern readers will relish the pin-sharp portrait of a tiny part of society, as if picked out in Californian sunlight. Really good writing like this doesn't age.' - Guardian'The mastery of technique here is just about absolute.' - New York Times'I - whose usual bed time is ten o'clock - stayed up all night reading that exquisite Cassandra at the Wedding - dazzled by the pyrotechnics of such an artist.' - Carson McCullers'Witty and assured. Her tone is dark but jaunty, the writing off-handedly smart.' - London Review of Books'Baker's touching, witty and sharp character study is an over-looked twentieth century American literary classic, featuring a protagonist easily as headstrong, vulnerable and compelling as Holden Caulfield.' - BBC Radio 4'[Baker's] ear for dialogue is acute, her prose immaculate... this is a novel of exceptional quality.' - TLS
