About this deal

She languishes on in France where flirting now becomes a compulsive distraction as well as a physical need. Back at home front, a tragedy strikes and the husband, not knowing where his wife is, does the thing on his own. First published in 1965 this book was initially banned in Ireland because of its sexual content but by today's standards it is pretty tame.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This is more of a precursor to the Charles Manson darkness with which that decade culminated than a celebration of excess.Edna O’Brien is an award-winning Irish author of novels, plays, and short stories, has been hailed as one of the greatest chroniclers of the female experience in the twentieth century. With classics such as Ted Hughes's The Iron Man and award-winners including Emma Carroll's Letters from the Lighthouse, Faber Children's Books brings you the best in picture books, young reads and classics.

After being brought as low as possible, Ellen does find her way back to herself and living her life. Separated from her husband and young son, Ellen leaves behind the loneliness of London for a new life of excitement and sexual freedom:a 'jaunt into iniquity' on the gorgeous French Riviera. I don't regret reading this slim volume, but I can't say that I will be recommending it to very many people either. Along with the characters she meets, Ellen throws themselves into a hedonistic situation where nobody appears at all happy and are only able to show any sense of enthusiasm for the trappings of wealth and a series of sexual encounters in which none appears to invest any emotion.When Ellen’s husband takes their seven-year-old young son — whom they share custody for — on a camping trip to Wales, Ellen is free to enjoy her own summer break from her job as a theatre critic. The character of Ellen is so unformed, her hair color keeps changing, and I don't mean because she dyes it.
