Autumn Laing, Paperback / softback Book

Autumn Laing Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Autumn Laing seduces Pat Donlon with her lust for life and art.

In doing so she not only compromises the trusting love she has with her husband, Arthur, she also steals the future from Pat's young and beautiful wife, Edith, and their unborn child. Fifty-three years later, cantankerous, engaging, unrestrainable 85-year-old Autumn is shocked to find within herself a powerful need for redemption.

As she tells her story, she writes, 'They are all dead and I am old and skeleton-gaunt.

This is where it began...' Written with compassion and intelligence, this energetic, funny and wise novel peels back the layers of storytelling and asks what truth has to do with it.

Autumn Laing is an unflinchingly intimate portrait of a woman and her time - she is unforgettable.
