Much of William Trevor's writing has been about people who have retreated from the difficulties of life into quirkiness and eccentricity. By contrast, he has built this major new novel round an 'ordinary' woman. Elizabeth Aidallbery is forty-one, divorced, the mother of three daughters. Since childhood she has been haunted by feelings of inadequacy and guilt, and she looks back now on a marriage that was a mistake and on a love affair that has lost its lustre. 336pp. Size: 8vo Large Post (8¼" x 5") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
