Reseña del editor:

Shortlisted for the 1976 Booker Prize, this is a novel about an ordinary woman, in the middle of her life, seized by love for a younger man. The author also wrote "The Colour of Blood", "The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne" and "The Doctor's Wife".

Contraportada:

Awaiting her husband's arrival on holiday in France, Sheila Redden, a quiet, middle-aged doctor's wife, suddenly finds herself caught up in a passionate affair with a young American, ten years her junior. This extraordinarily powerful portrayal of a woman transformed by love was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.

"The subject – an ordinary woman seized by love for a younger man in the middle of her life – supplies just the right material for Mr Moore's tender, probing technique. It is uncanny: no other male writer, I swear (and precious few females), knows so much about women."
SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

"The novel is near perfection. The elegance and clarity of style rides in perfect harmony with the subtlety and depth of feeling. The dialogue is perfect – the author's ear sharp for the cadences of ecstasy, self-pity, love and anger. The feeling for mood and background is perfect... a novel of mature assurance and brilliant insight that must make it one of the outstanding works of fiction of the year."
THE TIMES

"Nightmare images of tanks cruising down empty night streets, feverish erotic couplings with a stranger in foreign hotels; a married woman from a provincial backwater breaking out on a trip abroad; a concerned sibling observing a rebellious sister; the palpable absence of God in the central characters' lives and the notion that art and sex might replace Him... a splendidly bracing experience."
NEW STATESMAN

'No Other Life, The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne, The Colour of Blood, Black Robe' and many other novels by Brian Moore are available in Flamingo.
