About this product
- DescriptionHow well do we kw the people we marry? Is it wrong to decide it s time to be honest? Is love eugh to save a family? In<i></i><b>The Retreat from Moscow</b><i>, </i> William Nicholson, the celebrated author of <b>Shadowlands</b><i>, </i>tells the powerful story of a husband who decides to be truthful in his marriage, and of the wife and son whose lives will never be the same again. Edward and Alice have been married for thirty-three years. He is a teacher at a boys school, perfectly at home with his daily crossword and lately engrossed in reading about Napoleon s costly invasion of Moscow. She is an observant Catholic, exacting and opinionated, and has been collecting poems about lost love for a new anthology. Jamie, their diffident thirty-two year old son, is visiting for the weekend when Edward anunces he has met ather woman. With the coiled intensity of Tom Stoppard s <b>The Real Thing</b><i></i>and the embracing empathy of Edward Albee s best family dramas, <b>The Retreat from Moscow</b><i></i>shines a breathtakingly natural light on the fallout of a shattered marriage.
