The Madwoman on a Pilgrimage Paperback
The 'madwoman' of the title is highly sought after - in fact a man's passion for her is shared, rather inconveniently, by his son, as both declare themselves her suitors.
Her 'pilgrimage' is to relinquish their hold on her, which she does by implying a certain - rather indelicate - state of affairs.
Her ploy works, and the resultant chaos and confusion for father and son create a brilliantly comic ending. "The Madwoman on a Pilgrimage" is accompanied by "Who is the Betrayer?", in which a man's nocturnal monologues reveal rather more than he would wish, and a third tale where, again, erotic infidelity and inadvertent revelation go hand in hand.
