After Leaving Mr Mackenzie, Paperback / softback Book

After Leaving Mr Mackenzie Paperback / softback

A brilliant, yet brutal, portrait of a woman struggling to retrieve both life and love, from the author of Wide Sargasso SeaFor six months, Julia has lived alone in a drab Parisian hotel on an allowance from her ex-lover, Mr. Mackenzie. When his cheques stop, Julia decides to leave France and return to London.

Past her prime, exhausted by broken love affairs and addled by drink, Julia is tragically unable to find what she really wants - love.
