Becker Wives: And Other Stories Mary Lavin



1 in stock


Comprised of four short stories The Becker Wives , The Joy Ride , A Happy Death and Magenta this collection is one of Lavin s most celebrated. Together, these stories capture the frustrations and grace of characters struggling to free themselves in places that are often hostile to their desires: a new bride coming home to her husband s prim family, two butlers taking a rare opportunity to go out drinking, a woman pleading with her dying husband to repent, and a young housekeeper whose fortunes seem to have suddenly changed. For the first time in decades, and with a foreword by Christine Dwyer Hickey, the Modern Irish Classics series brings this vital collection to a new generation of readers.
