Dale Jamieson explains the ever-present role of nature in interpersonal relationships:

“Part of what the book is really trying to present us with is the idea that the relationship between two people necessary involves a relationship to nature. It’s not accidental or a byproduct. And that’s coming up again in ‘Holiday’ as well. Because nature is never absent. Even a degraded nature is still asserting itself in the relationships of these three women. Both in that fact that they have to actually come to a fantasy place to escape the realties of nature. And also because their imagination of nature is also informing what is they’re experiencing in their fantasy.”
