Annotation

Beautiful, proud Roxana is terrified of being poor. When her foolish husband leaves her penniless with five children, she must choose between being a virtuous beggar or a rich whore. A vivid satire on a dissolute society, this book presents a psychologically acute evocation of the ways in which vanity and ambition can corrupt the human soul.
