Pageturners

Read The Death of the Heart by Elizabeth Bowen. A naive teenage orphan moves to sophisticated and politely treacherous London, to live with her wealthy brother. Falling in love, she suffers stunning betrayal — a most moving and desperate flight of the heart. Bowen’s characters, set in pre-WWII, show that period’s high tension, increasing anxiety and stress on individualism. All are intensely self-conscious: thinking everything might soon end.
