Maurice Fisher is a London parish priest in an unfashionable quarter of Kensington. He has a wife whose frigid vanity, shirking of any household or parish duties, and despairing egotism is shrouded—like her beauty—in such pathetic and frightful self-deception that to love her at all becomes one of her husband’s greatest private struggles. Into this desert of duty and self-control, where his external life is a dogged shambles, his inner life dissolving through lack of joy, arrives somebody who awakens him to all—or a great deal—that he has been missing.

Pamela Hansford Johnson wrote 27 novels across genres as diverse as romance, comedy and tragedy. An incredibly readable and literary author, who deserves to be rediscovered by a new generation, Bello has brought 18 of Johnson’s books back into print.
