More Description from Internet Sources--

For the first time in paperback: two of the extraordinary novels that have established Kathryn Davis as one of the most original and imaginative American novelists at work today. THE GIRL WHO TROD ON A LOAF immerses us in the lives of two women in a small upstate New York town--a single mother of twin daughters who waits tables (despite her privileged background) and the elderly Danish composer whom she befriends. At the heart of their peculiar friendship is a Hans Christian Andersen tale (the subject of the composer's final opera) about a prideful girl who is damned for using a loaf of bread, intended as a gift for her parents, as a stepping stone.
