Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

More famous for her sensuous novels, Mich le Roberts now writes a short, sharp and witty novel in the spirit of Muriel Spark. 'A triumphant tour de force' Time Out

Who is Aurora Every time she becomes a new Mrs (three times when we last counted) she becomes a new woman. Her stepmother thinks Aurora is impractical, romantic and dreamy. The fact that she gets married so often only goes to prove it. 'Every woman owes it to herself to get married once, but you don't have to make a habit of it.'

But now, all alone. . .

'Aurora, given the chance to be true to herself, rather than to her trio of husbands, turns out to be a world-class minx. After Hugh's funeral, she goes to Italy to visit her old radical-feminist friend, Leonora, now the abbess of the Brigandine convent in Padenza. True to the tradition of convent-educated girls in fiction, Aurora flings herself into a voluptuous life of lunches and lovers. Chiselled phrasing and dancing plot . . . a sizzling firework display of a book' Sunday Times.
