9780062135643: Married Love: And Other Stories (P.S.)

Lottie announces at the breakfast table that she is getting married. The youngest daughter of a large and close-knit family, Lottie is nineteen but looks five years younger. Her fiance is Edgar Lennox, a composer of religious music and lecturer at Lottie's university, forty-five years her senior. We follow as Lottie's life unfolds; her marriage to Edgar, the tiny flat they share, the children that follow. It is a story of romantic dreams and daily reality, family loyalties tested but holding, and the comedy and solace to be found in small moments. Evoking a world that expands beyond the pages, it marks the beginning of what is an astonishing new collection. On full display in these stories are the qualities Tessa Hadley has been praised for often before: her unflinching examination of family relationships; her humour, warmth and psychological acuity; and, her powerful and precise prose. In this collection there are domestic dramas, generational sagas, wrenching love affairs and epiphanies - captured and distilled to remarkable effect. "Married Love" is a collection to treasure, a masterful new work from one of the most accomplished storytellers of today.

Also included in this astonishing new collection are domestic dramas, generational sagas, wrenching love affairs and epiphanies.

Review:

"The stories collected in Married Love tend to announced themselves with a crash ... before resolving into quieter reflections, like musical overtures in which strings follow brass. Whether it is in examining the mellowing of a marriage in the title piece, or recounting the progress of a one night stand ("In the Cave"), Hadley writes of ordinary lives with a gracefulness unequalled among her peers" Independent on Sunday "Occasionally - very occasionally - a book feels like a gift, something unexpected, exhilarating, life-enhancing. Tessa Hadley's second collection of short stories is such a book" The Times "One of the most subtle and sublime contemporary writers" Vogue "The most perceptive chronicler since George Eliot of avid, unworldly young women" Guardian "Hadley is a writer of exceptional intelligence and skill Only Alice Munro and Colm Toibin, among all the working short story writers I'm aware of, are so adept at portraying whole lives in a few thousand words. With Married Love, Hadley joins their company as one of the most clear-sighted chroniclers of contemporary emotional journeys" Observer
