9781844083084: Blaming (Virago Modern Classics)

When Amy's husband dies on holiday in Istanbul, she is supported by the kindly but rather slovenly Martha, a young American novelist who lives in London. Upon their return to England, Amy is ungratefully reluctant to maintain their friendship, but the skeins of their existence seem inextricably linked as grief gives way to resilience and again to tragedy. Reversals of fortune and a compelling cast of characters, including Ernie, ex-sailor turned housekeeper, and Amy's wonderfully precocious granddaughters, add spice to a novel that delights even as it unveils the most uncomfortable human emotions.

From the Publisher:

When tragedy strikes Amy while on holiday in Istanbul, she is “adopted” by the kindly but rather slovenly Martha, an American who lives in London. Upon their return to England, Amy is ungratefully reluctant to maintain their friendship, but the skeins of their existence seem inextricably linked. With its compelling cast of characters—including Ernie, ex–sailor turned housekeeper, and Amy’s precious granddaughters—Blaming delights even as it unveils the most uncomfortable human emotions. Elizabeth Taylor (19121975) is the author of many highly praised works, including At Mrs Lippincote’s and Angel.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Taylor (1912-1975) was born and educated in Reading. On leaving school she worked as a governess and later in a library. She lived much of her married life in the village of Penn, Bucks.
