"They" are novelist Jean Rhys's characters, women who, like Rhys herself, lived in London and Paris between the World Wars. During this era Rhys published four novels: Postures (published in 1928; published in the United States under the title Quartet}, After Leaving Mr. MacKenzie (published in 1931), Voyage in the Dark (published in 1934), and Good Morning. Midnight (published in 1939).
