At Mrs Lippincote's, Paperback Book

At Mrs Lippincote's Paperback

Part of the Virago Modern Classics series



Shortlisted for the Booker Prize.Mrs Lippincote's house, with its mahogany furniture and yellowing photographs, stands as a reminder of all the certainties that have vanished with the advent of war.

Temporarily, this is home for Julia, who has joined her husband Roddy at the behest of the RAF.

Although she can accept the pomposities of service life, Julia's honesty and sense of humour prevent her from taking her role as seriously as her husband, that leader of men, might wish; for Roddy, merely love cannot suffice - he needs homage as well as admiration. And Julia, while she may be a most unsatisfactory officer's wife, is certainly no hypocrite.
