Synopsis

A jilted lover skirts the edges of time and place as she walks the streets of London at night; a woman returns to the scene of her honeymoon without her husband; a bereft daughter traces her relationship with her mother as she slowly packs up a house in the aftermath of death. In this brilliant collection of intimate and intense stories, Michele Roberts takes us to nineteenth century Venice, 1970s England, modern-day France and beyond. Here too are Tristram and Isolde with a twist; George Sand, sick in Venice with her unfaithful lover; and the bitter maid taking care of young Adele: both forced out of Rochester's home to make way for the passions of Jane Eyre...With her subversive, often witty, exploration of women's desires, memory, grief, love and betrayal, Michele Roberts demonstrates once again why she remains one of Britain's most invigorating writers.
