9780099287766: To The North (Vintage Classics)

TO THE NORTH portrays a classic romantic entanglement of a sympathetic, honest, well-meaning young woman who cannot resist becoming involved with a man who is patently caddish and predatory. In striking and richly comic contrast to the turbulence of this passion is the cool, detached atmosphere of the house in St John's Wood in which it takes its course - where the young woman's sister-in-law with her strictly unromantic preoccupations is always near by, the orphaned teenager Pauline presents herself as gawky innocence itself, and the power-loving busybody Lady Waters misses nothing.

Product Description:

Cecilia, capricious and unable to love, inches reluctantly towards a second marriage to the kind, passionless Julian Tower. Meanwhile, her sister-in-law, Emmeline, is surprised to find the calm tenor of her life disturbed by her attraction to the predatory Mark Linkwater. Markie's appearance disrupts the lives of both women, but in the pain of misunderstanding, it is Emmeline who reveals her vulnerability in a violent and tragic act.

Reissued alongside The Hotel and The Little Girls

Review:

"To the North and The Death of the Heart are among the finest novels of her generation" (V.S. Pritchett)

"A lavishness of imagination is brought to bear upon small moments, and the writing is of such intensity that a character is revealed in one expression, a way of life disclosed in a single scene" (Peter Ackroyd Sunday Times)

"Haunting novels of bad faith and betrayal" (Guardian)

"She startles us by sheer originality of mind and boldness of sensibility into seeking our world afresh...Out of the plainest things - the drawing of a curtain - she can make something electric and urgent" (V.S. Pritchett)
