Lady Oracle

book | Fiction | 1976
UK → Andre Deutsch

The shy, awkward wife of a perpetual radical, Joan Foster is a formerly obese woman whose delicate equilibrium is threatened by the fact that the several lives she has lived separately and secretly are coming together and will be exposed. She is newly and notoriously famous as a bestselling author; she writes gothic novels under a nom de plume; she is having a hidden affair.

Love, fear, understanding, suspense, sensuality, and humour – there is hardly an emotional current that is not touched in Lady Oracle.

Reviews

Brilliant and funny. I can't tell you how exhilarating it was to read it -- everything works. An extraordinary book. Joan Didion

Read it for its gracefulness, for its good story, and for its help with your fantasy life.
Toronto Globe and Mail

Shrewd, funny, intelligent, honest, ironic
Scotland on Sunday

If you feel safe only with "nine to five" reality, you'll probably not enjoy her books. But if you'd like to lift off, try her
