Reader's note

A lovely 1964 edition of The Pumpkin Eater by Penelope Mortimer in a pictorial cover design! In this moving novel the author sheds a tear for every woman - her whims, her frailty, her indomitable loyalty. The Pumpkin Eater is the story of the emotional; breakdown of a mother of many children and of her husband's estrangement. From cause and consequence, from past and present, Mrs Mortimer touches in the little world of one sad person with the patient art of the miniaturist. Her sentences - so seemingly simple - ring in turn with humour, poetry, and heartbreak, as her central character slips deeper and deeper into the twilight between resignation and despair.
