9780571243594: The Middle Age of Mrs Eliot

Meg Eliot is the wife of a successful barrister and with that comes a lovely home in Westminster, cocktail parties and a round of charity committees. She is the model wife and her life is one of ease, contentment and privilege. All that changes though when she is suddenly left widowed after a senseless tragedy. Totally alone she is thrust into a struggle to reconstruct her life as she realises that she doesn't really know who she is anymore or who she is supposed to be. The Middle Age of Mrs Eliot follows Meg as she tries to make sense of the realities of life, of living and contemplates the future and its possibilites. What she finds is the ability to survive and, also, the joys of new friendships, new opportunities and perhaps even the idea of a new love. Described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘one of fiction's great female creatures', Meg Eliot is a powerful heroine who inspired readers when she first appeared in 1958.

Review:

Angus Wilson achieved literary notoriety with the publication of his 1953 novel Hemlock and After. It was five years later, however, with the release of his masterpiece The Middle Age of Mrs. Eliot that he secured a lasting place in British letters. This work, a compassionate portrait of a newly widowed women in her mid-40s who wants to do good in a world that does not need her, remains as vibrant and moving as it did 40 years ago. Wilson's prose is smart and his portrayal of self-deception bred of loneliness is deeply disturbing. Yet, in spite of this, Wilson's beautiful use of language wedded to his psychological insights, make The Middle Age of Mrs. Eliot a pleasure to read.

About the Author:

Dr. Ben Wilson gained his doctorate in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen in 1995. He has studied the behavior and ecology of marine mammals and fish for over 10 years. He is a member of the IUCN Cetacean Specialist Group, International Whaling Commission, and the Society for Marine Mammalogy, and is a Lecturer for the Scottish Association for Marine Science. He is widely published in scientific papers, and is also the author of the popular books: Dolphins Worldlife Library Series (1998) and Bottlenose Dolphins Worldlife Library Series (1994), with co-author Paul Thompson. He lives in Oban, Scotland.
Angus Wilson is an associate professor and researcher at New York University School of Medicine. He has had a life-long interest in offshore wildlife, principally birds and marine mammals. This passion is reflected on his Ocean Wanderers web site (ww.oceanwanderers.com). During the past few years, he has traveled to all the major oceans in the world and encountered many species of whale, dolphin and porpoise. Angus is a regular leader on excursions off the mid-Atlantic states in search of birds and cetaceans. He lives in New York City.
