Product description


I devoured the book at a sitting and then went back for a second dip at once (Sunday Telegraph)

If you’re coming to Lurie for the first time, you must begin with the Pulitzer prize-winning Foreign Affairs (Guardian)

Lurie...has quietly but surely established herself as one of this country's most able and witty novelists (New York Times (1984))

Perhaps more shocking than she knows - shocking like Jane Austen, not Genet

In Foreign Affairs no detail lacks its special piquancy. And none can be savored without leaving you with a mouthful of barbed hooks (New York Times)

About the Author

Alison Lurie's non fiction books include studies of folklore and children's literature, and her novels include such favourites as The War Between the Tates, The Truth about Lorin Jones, Last Resort, and the Pultizer Prize-winning, Foreign Affairs.
