This story is narrated by a painter, who specialises as a copyist. All around him, the women with whom he is in love leave signs which alter emotional details: Clio, his child-bride, is destructive in her pliancy; his first wife, Helen, betrays him; and Maisie, his forthright East End mother has her own secrets. And the two central figures - the painter's schizophrenic son and his neglected stepson - become the focus for a startling conclusion.
