Two Cases Of Adultery (Book Revew: The View From Here, Deborah McKinley)
Deborah McKinlay's "The View From Here" show show adultery touched a woman's life twice in her lifetime. Frances has been diagnosed with cancer and she knows the end is near, and at the same time she recalls an affair she had during her younger and more hedonistic days. The author toggles the two stories and it's done with great effect, but the earlier story is a little more convoluted and suffers from too much detailing. (I never got some of the characters straight) The story heartbreakingly ends both ways, but it just sometimes too much labour getting there.
