Flora Goforth, a rich, once-beautiful southerner, has buried four husbands and retired to a secluded Italian mountaintop to write her sensational memoirs. With the aid of an overworked secretary, the eccentric woman dulls the pain of her “neuralgia” with pills and cognac, dictating night and day to meet her looming publisher’s deadline until a mysterious young stranger shows up and interrupts her routine.
