The Slaves of Solitude, Paperback

The Slaves of Solitude Paperback



A welcome reissue of one of Patrick Hamilton's best, with an introduction by Doris Lessing. The Slaves of Solitude is set in a wartime boarding house in a small town on the Thames.

The Rosamund Tea Rooms is an oppressive place, as grey and lonely as its residents.

For Miss Roach, slave of her task-master, solitude, a window of opportunity is suddenly presented by the appearance of a charismatic American Lieutenant.

His arrival brings change to the precarious society of the house and ultimately, to Miss Roach herself.
