About this title


A humorous story of a beautiful, flamboyant, and selfish journalist named Lydia who takes a holiday at her Welsh country cottage in order to get over a broken love affair

From the Publisher:

Lydia, a proud and witty journalist, retreats to a Welsh valley while her broken heart mends. Originally published in 1985, Unexplained Laughter—“Alice Thomas Ellis’s best novel,” according to THE SPECTATOR—is filled with mordant wit, metaphysical moment, and emanations of the uncanny. With a new Afterword by James Mustich, Jr.
