With prose that is vibrant, witty, and off-the-wall, this recent winner of Britain's Whitbread Award for Best Novel of the Year traces the emotional breakdown--and then restoration--of Eliza Peabody, a smart and wildly imaginative woman who has become unbearably isolated in her prosperous home in present-day South London. A startling portrait of a woman who is dying alive.--Ruth Rendell, Daily Telegraph (London).

display_description Winner of the Whitbread Prize for Best Novel of the Year. From the author of Old Filth. With prose that is vibrant and witty, The Queen of the Tambourine traces the emotional breakdown-and eventual restoration-of Eliza Peabody, a smart and wildly imaginative woman who has become unbearably isolated in her prosperous London neighborhood. The letters Eliza writes to her neighbor, a woman whom she hardly knows, reveal her self-propelled descent into madness. Eliza must reach the depths of her downward spiral before she can once again find health and serenity. This story of a woman's confrontation with the realities of sanity will delight readers who enjoy the works of Anita Brookner, Sybille Bedford, Muriel Spark, and Sylvia Plath.
