Fanny is a dramatic narrative in free verse set in a mansion on an estate in the country where Fanny is the longtime cook. As Fanny rests and waits for the houseguests to return for supper she thinks about her life on the Estate and people she's known there--the dowagers, Mrs. P and Mrs. L, who have been friends and closet competitors since childhood; Cammie, Mrs. P's adult daughter who is "not right"; My George, Fanny's boyfriend, who owns the little garage and filling station out on High Road; and her friend, Gertie who was cook at Parson Baker's estate at the time of the murder/suicide.
