Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140015027, Paperback)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.
