9780099591948: Married Past Redemption

From the Booker-Prize-winning author of Holiday. Rejacketed and reissued by Windmill to mark the 40th anniversary of Middleton's Booker Prize win.

David and Alison are a successful young couple planning their wedding, but they are surrounded by family and friends whose marriages have ended in failure. As each member of this close community struggles to make or re-make a life, Stanley Middleton tests the reality of present and past marriage, its possibilities and dangers, its hopes and fears.

'His reputation, built book by book, as an astute observer of middle-England bourgeois life and as a writer whose reach extends far beyond his immediate milieu, is probably now invulnerable.' Nicholas Wroe.' Times Literary Supplement

'Every page is taut with inner strength and truth.' Mail on Sunday

Review:

"Stanley Middleton, once dubbed “The Chekhov of Suburbia”, is to the Midlands suburb what Anne Tyler is to the Midwest picket fence" ( The Times)

"Middleton is concerned with what goes on below the surface of lives, what people feel, dream about, hope for, resent, fear – all the things that in real life may be kept hidden… Anyone coming to Middleton afresh has a real treat in store." (Allan Massie Scotsman)

"We need Stanley Middleton to remind us of what the novel is about." ( Sunday Times)

"What is so extraordinary about Mr Middleton’s talent is that, despite implacable domesticity, he is not trivial… Mr Middleton does not wish to change anybody’s view of the world; he only wants to help the readers understand and better the view of it that they already have, and his quietness, honesty and patience do indeed lead him to success in that endeavour." (Bernard Levin)
