The Quiet Woman, Paperback


THE QUIET WOMAN stitches together a horrifyingly plausable near-future dystopian Britain and a typically Priestian account of an individual lost in the blurred boundaries between the real and the imagined.

It is a novel that bears comparison with the work of Kazuo Ishiguro and A.S.

Byatt as well as that of John Wyndham. In a country that has lost its way memories of past lives are distracting Alice Stockton.

Living alone after the break up of her marriage she makes a precarious living as a biographer yet finds herself powerfully and inexplicably influenced by the lives of others. A novel of uncertain personal histories and literary mystery set in a disturbingly real dystopian Britain, THE QUIET WOMAN is vintage Christopher Priest.
