9780156001236: Lilian's Story (Harvest Book)

Madness, cruelty, and sexuality permeate the household in which Lilian Una Singer is raised-an upper-crust Victorian world of teacups and servants. But Lilian, shielded by layers of fat, an iron will, and an indomitable spirit, has her sights set on an education, love, and-finally-her own transcendent forms of independence.

From the Back Cover:

'This novel is bound for glory: it is original, moving, and brilliantly convincing.'
Vogue

Lilian Una Singer starts life as the daughter of a prosperous middle-class family. She ends it as a cheerfully eccentric bag-lady living on the streets, quoting Shakespeare for a living. How did she come to take this journey, and why did she make the choices she did?

The world presents Lilian with many obstacles, not least the fact that she is a woman. But in spite of everything, she triumphantly makes her life her own, savouring every moment with the reminder that 'everything matters'.

Lilian's Story is a wonderful, life-affirming novel from one of our most gifted writers.

'Lilian's Story takes you into another world, which is rare.'
Guardian

'Grenville's prose is breathtaking and her novel is a miracle of characterisation . . . This is a rare and beautiful book.'
Boston Globe
