Summary

"In White's 1973 classic, terrifying matriarch Elizabeth Hunter is facing death while her impatient children - Sir Basil, the celebrated actor, and Princess de Lascabane, an adoptive French aristocrat -wait. It is the dying mother who will command attention, and who in the midst of disaster will look into the eye of the storm. "An antipodean King Lear writ gentle and tragicomic, almost Chekhovian . . . Eye of the Storm [is] an intensely dramatic masterpiece" (The Australian)"--
