The Door, Paperback / softback Book

The Door Paperback / softback

Part of the Vintage Editions series

Paperback / softback


Emerence is a domestic servant - strong, fierce, eccentric, and with a reputation for being a first-rate housekeeper.

When Magda, a young Hungarian writer, takes her on she never imagines how important this woman will become to her.

It takes twenty years for a complex trust between them to be slowly, carefully built.

But Emerence has secrets and vulnerabilities beneath her indomitable exterior which will test Magda's friendship and change the complexion of both their lives irreversibly. Elegant, pocket-sized paperbacks, VINTAGE Editions celebrate the audacity and ambition of the written word, transporting readers to wherever in the world literary innovation may be found.
