The Tortoise And The Hare Paperback / softback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

'A subtle and beautiful book . . . Very few authors combine her acute psychological insight with her grace and style.

There is plenty of life in the modern novel, plenty of authors who will shock and amaze you - but who will put on the page a beautiful sentence, a sentence you will want to read twice?' HILARY MANTEL, Sunday TimesIn affairs of the heart the race is not necessarily won by the swift or the fair. Imogen, the beautiful and much younger wife of distinguished barrister Evelyn Gresham, is facing the greatest challenge of her married life.

Their neighbour Blanche Silcox, competent, middle-aged and ungainly - the very opposite of Imogen - seems to be vying for Evelyn's attention. And to Imogen's increasing disbelief, she may be succeeding. 'The perfection of its tone and prose is matched by an anguished wit' AMANDA CRAIG, Guardian
