How odd. Another first novel, originally published in 1977. I've read quite a few of hers so I'm really looking forward to this one. (I didn't realise it was her first when I requested it).

This book is about an affair but if you're looking for mindless passion and detailed bonking sessions, read no further. Penelope Lively has written a subtle and for me, psychologically true account of what it is like to deceive another and more importantly why we would. The small disappointments, the disinterest the husband displayed were so telling. I just wish I could have got to know David a little more. Otherwise though, a very satisfying read.

How very civilised. A reason or a season - it shouldn't have to change a lifetime!

First published in 1971, it seems very outdated - story of an affair - no sex. Dull prissy English people Fortunately Lively's writindeveloped and her characters became more lively!
