The pumpkin eater

Mortimer, Penelope, 1918-1999, author

One of the many achievements of this novel is that it manages to find universal truths in what was hardly an archetypal situation: Mortimer peels several layers of skin off the subjects of motherhood, marriage, and monogamy, so that what we're asked to look at is frequently red-raw and painful without being remotely self-dramatizing
