About this title


Louise's husband goes to goal for ten years and she is left penniless with a difficult 12 year old daughter. Her family are shocked, her friends are engrossed in their own lives and it is her West Indian neighbour who teaches her to recognize the potential of her good mind and attractive personality. Elaine Feinstein has also written "Mother's Girl" and "The Border".

From Publishers Weekly:

Within British writer Feinstein's ( The Border ) 10th novel several intriguing stories struggle to emerge--but none quite succeeds. Fifteen years into an essentially dead marriage, Nell Bolton learns that husband Brian, whose occupation she neither knows nor seems to care about, has been sent to jail for fraud. Nell snaps up teenage daughter Becky, leaves the spirit-sapping suburbs and moves to a London basement flat to start life anew. She accepts a subsistence job at a Feminist Arts workshop before finding excitement with TV documentary producer Theo Walloon, who hires her, whisks her off for an adventure in Tuscany and becomes her lover. But Nell, burdened with whiny Becky and stifled because ``women are always oppressed by their need to please,'' is ``congenitally anxious'' and cannot find fulfillment until she writes a poem--nor peace until she sleuths out the drug dealer who framed Brian on the way to the novel's abrupt and frustrating end. Feinstein's smug men and self-absorbed women never fully engage us, and her prose, despite deft descriptions of party scenes, bogs down under the author's compulsion to plumb the motivation for almost every line of dialogue.
