The Middle Ground

Margaret Drabble

1 Reviews

Rated 0

Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

A brilliant and witty novel about a group of friends in their middle years, caught between children and parents, and the pleasures and dangers of London life.

Kate Armstrong, successful journalist and spokesperson for many women, is worn out. A mother, daughter, friend and betrayed lover - she has embraced life to the full - but now in her forties, divorced, with her children preparing to leave, she finds herself at a crossroads. Along with her inner circle: her ex-lover and doctor of sorts, Ted Stennett, his wife, social worker, Evelyn, and wounded adventurer Hugo Mainwaring, she begins to consider what the future might hold.

Brilliantly perceptive and witty, THE MIDDLE GROUND chronicles the joys - and crises - of family and professional life, and ultimately asks what it means to be a strong and independent woman and how to face the coming years.
