Description
Kate Armstrong, successful journalist and spokesperson for many women, is worn out. A mother, daughter, friend and betrayed lover - she has embraced life to the full - but now in her forties, divorced, with her children preparing to leave, she finds herself at a crossroads. Along with her inner circle: her ex-lover and doctor of sorts, Ted Stennett, his wife, social worker, Evelyn, and wounded adventurer Hugo Mainwaring, she begins to consider what the future might hold. Brilliantly perceptive and witty, THE MIDDLE GROUND chronicles the joys - and crises - of family and professional life, and ultimately asks what it means to be a strong and independent woman and how to face the coming years. 'Fascinating . . . provocative and absorbing' New York Times 'Marvellous' New York Times Book Review

display_descriptionA novel about a woman's psychological battle with the realities of midlife. Witty and endearingly neurotic, Kate Armstrong has hit a certain age-and the crisis that goes along with it. She has a career as a successful journalist, specializing in feminist issues, but she struggles to challenge herself at work. She's a mother, but her children have all left the nest, and her marriage has ended in divorce. She has a lively circle of friends, but her relationships with them are complicated by years of history and failed affairs. She's left one stage of life behind and has another stage ahead of her, but right now she's stuck somewhere in the middle. Margaret Drabble shows us a woman alone in London for the first time in years-slowly rediscovering herself in a city on the brink of great change.
