9781844083084: Blaming (Virago Modern Classics)

While on holiday in Istanbul, tragedy strikes, and suddenly the comfortably middle-aged, middle-class Amy is left stranded and a widow. Martha, a young American novelist, kindly helps her, but upon their return to England, Amy is ungratefully reluctant to maintain their friendship—on home soil she realizes that in normal circumstances, Martha isn't the sort of person she would be friends with. But guilt is a hard taskmaster, and Martha has a way of getting under one's skin.

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.
