The Old Wives' Tale, Paperback Book

The Old Wives' Tale Paperback

Description

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY SATHNAM SANGHERAYou might find it hard to imagine that those stout ageing spinsters living quietly in small English towns ever led lives of passion or hardship, that they ever possessed beauty or romantic ideals.

In The Old Wives' Tale, Arnold Bennett tells the story of two such old wives, sisters Constance and Sophia, from youth, through marriage, heartbreak, triumphs and disasters, to old age.

In doing so, he reveals with careful compassion the intense inner lives that throb beneath every seemingly insignificant exterior.
