The Road to Lichfield is the Booker Prize shortlisted first novel by Penelope Lively published as a Penguin Essential for the first time on the 40th annive I discovered Penelope Lively about a month ago with her Booker Prize winning Moon Tiger I devoured it not once but twice in a one month period and I can't wait to consume it again It is a novel which will stay with me until death or dementia I did not enjoy The Road to Lichfield uite as well The writing is still exceptional and it's better than most of what's out there Ms Lively does not waste a reader's time she always offers you the meat not the fat and when you hit the bone marrow your teeth chatter you start to shudder and sometimes you can't uite stop Lively wrote this story in her mid forties back in 1977 and it is incredibly remarkably modern Nothing about it feels dated except when she mentions the prices of things the new lavish home for thirty five thousand? Okay maybe a few things have changedHowever what hasn't changed is mid life Mid life It will always be the same despite the century A time of change frustration sick and dying parents career boredom marital angst and teenaged children who find you out of date And all of this written in a very disturbing very accurate and upsetting way It's hard to recommend a book which may provoke you to have an extramarital affair uit your career or leave your family for Paris This novel carries the transportative power of Kate Chopin's The Awakening As in one page and you've abandoned your children you're naked and you're headed out to seaThis is a dangerous and often depressing novel Consider yourself warned
