This chapter focuses on Iris Barry and Dick Abbott's divorce. According to Iris's daughter Maisie, Abbott divorced her mother in a very cruel way. She and Dick and two of their friends were all going to Switzerland to ski for a holiday and at the last minute Dick said he couldn't come because he had some business to attend to and he would follow along. The three went off, she and this married couple, and she broke her leg and she very quickly returned to New York and to their house with her leg in plaster. He wasn't there. He was elsewhere on business, ostensibly, and out of the blue she got divorce papers served on her. Dick Abbott had found someone else.
