Is black and white photograph of author to the rear fold over panel. Hannah Gonen is a wife of a geologist at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. But, neither her outwardly successful life or relationship with her husband Michael are fulfilling, so she retreats to a "... private world of fantasies made up of her childhood memories and suppressed desires, a prison of isolation to which Michael has no access and from which he cannot release her. It is the contrast between Hannah's inward sense of alienation and the perfectly normal circumstances of the socialite that the author portrays so perceptibly." -- from the front fault of a panel blurb.
