Someone At A Distance (Dorothy Whipple)


In stock

Description/ Get the look

Apparently a fairly ordinary tale about the destruction of a happy marriage, it makes compulsive reading in its description of an ordinary family ("Ellen was that unfashionable creature - a happy housewife") struck by disaster when the husband - in a moment of weak mid-life vanity - runs off with a French girl.


One of our favourite books, this novel has been reprinted for a newer audience by Persephone Books. With their distinctive plain grey jackets and cream ‘labels’ for the title wording; all of their books look absolutely beautiful and feature patterned endpapers chosen especially to match the date and mood of the book. Would make a great gift (if you can bear to give it away).
