Arlington Park PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Arlington Park free pdf Amid the leafy avenues and comfortable houses, the residents of Arlington park live out the dubious accomplishments of civilisation: material prosperity, personal freedom, and moral indifference. Men work, women look after children, and people generally do what's expected of them. Set over the course of a single rainy day, this novel moves from one household to another, and through the passing hours conducts a deep examination of its characters' lives: of Juliet, enranged at the victory of men over women in family life- of Amanda, warding off thoughts of death with obsessive housework- of Solly, who confronts her own buried femininity in the person of her Italian lodger- of Maisie, despairing at the inevitability with which beauty is destroyed- and of Christine, whose troubled, hilarious spirit presides over Arlington Park and the way of life it represents.
