‘Someone at a Distance’ by Dorothy Whipple
Someone at a Distance is the story of a family whose ordinary and contented life is torn apart when the husband, in a moment of weak mid-life vanity, runs off with a young French woman. Set in England and France in the 1950s, with a very definite sense of time and place, the story nevertheless feels timeless and makes for a compelling read. This was the first of Whipple’s novels to be rediscovered and published by the Persephone Press and is considered by many to be her best.
