The Georges' Wife

Elizabeth Jolley

Vera and Mr George have made a new life together but Vera’s thoughts return again and again to loves and lovers, meetings and partings - the voices that echo in the mind like music. What has she learned from the well-bred peace of the Georges' household; the decadence and disorder of her friendship with Noel and Felicity: the fun and vulgarity shared with her ‘widow’ on the long voyage to Australia? Must we always repeat the past? As in My Father’s Moon and Cabin Fever, Elizabeth Jolley returns to the themes of discord and harmony between brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, friends and lovers. Her spare and sensitive prose is illuminated with compassion and understanding gor the intricacies of human relationships. Winner of The Age Book Of The Year Award
