Following on from his previous novel, Jericho, and re-evoking the manifold themes and compelling rural French atmosphere of its predecessor, A Period of Adjustment tells the story of James Caldicott. His ruined marriage spurred him on to obey his estranged Brother's letter, which compelled him to take his house in the south of France. Upon discovering the tragic fate of his brother James, William, accompanied by his son Giles, attempts to rebuild his life only to find it being attacked from another, far too personal front.

It is an entertaining read emblazoned with Bogarde's usual winning combination of wit and charm.

First published in 1994, this is Dirk Bogarde's fifth novel.

About the Author:

Sir Dirk Bogarde was an English actor and novelist. Initially a matinee idol, Bogarde later acted in art-house films such as Death In Venice. As well as completing six novels, Bogarde wrote several volumes of autobiography.

Between 1947 and 1991, Bogarde made more than sixty films. For over two decades he lived in Italy and France, where he began to write seriously.

In 1985 he was awarded an honorary degree of Doctor of Letters by the University of St Andrews and in 1990 was promoted to Commandeur de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government.
Sir Dirk Bogarde has a legion of fans to this day - an extraordinary commitment to an extraordinary man.

From AudioFile:

Moving his life from England to France, acquiring custody of his young son, and dealing with life in another language require an intense period of adjustment. This novel offers a myriad of characters to whom Andrew Sachs gives vibrancy and personality. His French is delightful, his English perfectly enunciated; he's also a gentle reader who never divulges the next twist of plot. His narration enhances the written word so well that the listener longs to live in this village in southern France and melt into the lives of its inhabitants. J.P. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
