The Misogynist

ebook

Jomier has reached the age of retirement, his children are grown up
and his wife, after having an affair, has left him. Embittered and
humiliated, he lives alone in London, mourning the disintegration of his
marriage as he broods about the past and the present. When he falls for
Judith, things begin to improve. Yet he still cannot escape his old
habits and it is only when his daughter falls ill that he begins to
reassess his feelings towards those he loves and his ability to forgive.


Darkly humorous, ruthlessly satirical and surprisingly moving, The
Misogynist is a perceptive exploration of the ways in which we can
unintentionally let past disappointments affect our present, and how
difficult it can be to move forward.
