A Woman Of My Age Summary

A Woman Of My Age by Nina Bawden

Elizabeth and Richard are on holiday in Morocco, travelling from its fertile coast to the barren uplands beyond the Atlas mountains. During the expedition's adventures and mishaps, Elizabeth surveys her eighteen-year marriage and its accumulations of grievance, frustration and betrayal. Nina Bawden allows us to see the ambivalences and deceptions on both sides as this touching and often subversively comic novel moves towards a shocking catastrophe and a wryly surprising coda.

A Woman Of My Age Reviews

Absorbing and quietly uncompromising, redolent with the vibrant smells and colours of Majorca, and of Spain * Daily Telegraph *
A highly revealing account, not only of a woman's life, but of a whole extraordinary passage in one contemporary European country...it should be read by everybody interested in Spain and in women's special history in the present century * Financial Times *
A personal, at times lucid and always colourful account of life - and a life - in post-war Spain * Sunday Times *
It is unfair to look for a poetic sensibility in the daughter of a poet, yet Lucia Graves has plenty of it. She is a fine writer * Literary Review *
