The Tortoise and the Hare, Hardback Book

The Tortoise and the Hare Hardback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series

Description

In 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.'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 Times
