A Quiet Life | [Beryl Bainbridge]

A Quiet Life

The Second World War has ended, but not the battles waged daily on the domestic front. A deeply troubled family are living in genteel poverty and unremitting strife in their shabby seaside house. The melancholy father weeps in front of the radio, while his romantically disappointed wife spends half the night reading novels in the railway station.

Publisher's Summary

The Second World War has ended, but not the battles waged daily on the domestic front. A deeply troubled family are living in genteel poverty and unremitting strife in their shabby seaside house. The melancholy father weeps in front of the radio, while his romantically disappointed wife spends half the night reading novels in the railway station. In the woods, fifteen-year-old Madge sneaks off to meet a German POW, and Alan, the troubled adolescent son, suffers the family he can neither alter nor ignore, at least not until it has been destroyed.
