Is that a wife who can help me to make my. place in society?-who can smooth my way through social obstacles.

The villa at hampstead. I. ON a summer's morning, between thirty and forty years ago, two. girls were crying bitterly in the cabin of an East Indian. Is that a wife who can help me to make my. and political obstacles, to the House of Lords? By Jupiter! if. ever there was a woman to be 'buried' (as you call it), that.

The man who has not hesitated to betray us both, will not. hesitate to misrepresent us in the vilest way, if he can do it i. that the man and the woman have not chosen each other on rational. and producible grounds! We expect human passion to act on logical. hesitate to misrepresent us in the vilest way, if he can do it in. the future. For your own sake, let us be careful to give lying.

but-leave us, please leave u. Hester Dethridge accepted her dismissal, as she accepted every. dearest old man living-and you can trust him as you could trust. She bowed her head in sign that she. understood-looked for the last time at Anne-dropped a stiff. courtesy to her young mistress-and left the room. Will you take my uncle into your confidence, and be. guided by his advice?" With her mind still far away from the subject, Anne looked out. absently at the lawn, and made no answer.

In Swinburne’s words: ‘What brought good Wilkie’s My recent reading of Wilkie Collins’s Man and Wife was a great illustration of what a good idea it can be to come to novels in a state of blithe ignorance, without any idea of how they are conventionally regarded. Published in 1870, Man and Wife is apparently often seen as representing an early instance of the later Collins’s tendency to centre his novels around social issues: a choice that is seen as signalling a decline in literary quality.

Man and Wife was Wilkie Collins' ninth published novel. It is the second of his novels (after No Name) in which social questions provide the main impetus of the plot. Collins increasingly used his novels to explore social abuses, which according to critics tends to detract from their qualities as fiction.

  • I really like some of the work of Wilkie Collins (a friend of Charles Dickens, and similar in style). But some of his work is wonderful, and some is not at all. This is good in the second half, but hard to slog through the first half. Some believe this is his "hinge" work between the good stuff he wrote before becoming addicted to pain killers and what he wrote after the drugs. I don't know enough about him to judge where the book falls historically, but I know it took awhile to get into this one. Woman in White and No Name and Armadale are very much better.

    The relationships between me and my Dad, me and my Mum, and the new 'blended' families of ex- and step- fathers wives and girlfriends. There are some truly wonderful pages. It's a framework to measure yourself with, a metric to begin to ask questions about yourself with. I am never going to take 'The Grand Tour' of teenage lovers turning into newlyweds into babies and boys and retirement together and grand parenting. It is too late for me now. Instead it's Tony Parsons' world of wanting and understanding too late. Emotional guys trying to do right and somehow not getting there yet. The book aims deep inside and hits the target. Somewhere between the heart and the gut.

  • This is the second book I've read from Tony Parsons, and he is quickly becoming my favorite author. I have to say that I liked this one even more than the first, Man and Boy (as great as that was). I am a woman, and although I'm sure men can relate very closely to Harry, I loved this book. Harry Silver is a very human, likeable character and Tony writes in such a way that you feel you are right there with him and his characters. Without giving too much away, this book takes over from the first one and gives us insight into the "blended" families that are so common. I feel I know each of the characters so well, and was so sad to have finished the book so quickly. Tony, please give us more Harry Silver...

  • In truth, this book was recommended to me by famous Author/Television Writer Stephen J. Cannell. Now, while I have indeed met the man (he's a wonderful person), he didn't actually recommend this book in person just to me. He recommended it to all of us, in the forward to his new book 'At First Sight: A Novel Of Obsession'. He describes waiting on a movie set and reading this very book, and how it was part of what stimulated him to write his own "out of the normal" book. So I bought this book on Cannell's recommendation. You should too, and you should pick up 'At First Sight: A Novel Of Obsession' by Stephen J. Cannell also.

    In 'Man And Wife', author Andrew Klavan takes us into the depths of a "perfect marriage". Fourteen years ago, Calvin Bradley married the wrong girl ... according to the "laws of nature". He'd been engaged to a girl who was his equal in every way until he met a waitress named Marie. She was everything "society" felt was wrong for an upcoming psychiatry star like Cal; uneducated, small-town, simple. But Cal marries Marie anyway, and has had what he considers the perfect life ever since. He's never looked back. Until now.

    Dr. Calvin Bradley, a psychiatrist, is the president of the Highbury Family Mental Health Clinic, otherwise known as "The Manor". Along comes the enigmatic nineteen-year-old Peter Blue, brought in by mountainous Police Chief Orrin Hunnicut. Peter has beat up his girlfriend, set a church on fire, and raised a weapon directly at Hunnicut. All but Father Fairfax from one of the town's many churches want to see Peter put away. Fairfax talks Cal into meeting with the boy to see if he belonged at The Manor rather than jail. Peter Blue is a mystifying young man, who has his very own, uniquely intimate connection to God. He emits a very real spiritual aura. Cal decides to help him, and against Hunnicut's wishes places Peter in The Manor rather than jail, which Peter threatened to commit suicide in.

    Then Cal finds his perfect life shattered in the blink of an eye. Following a dream Peter described to him, Cal hikes up a wooded trail to a clearing with a flat rock that looks like an alter and an unusual tree formation that forms the shape of a cross. From his vantage point, he looks down by the river and sees his wife in an intimate conversation with a strange, dark man. When he later questions Marie about it, she laughs off his jealously and assures him it wasn't her. But things are never the same after that. Cal can't figure out if Marie is lying or not, and begins to question the fact that in fourteen years of marriage, Marie has never talked about her past or her sleeping difficulties. Just how well does Cal know his wife anyway?

    Cal eventually discovers the man's name is Lester Marshall, an ex-con new to Highbury. Cal not only suspects ties between Lester and Marie, but also Lester and Peter Blue. As the story unfolds, told in first-person by Cal, the more anxious Cal becomes to unravel the truth about his own life for the past fourteen years. Andrew Klavan has written a wonderful novel here, definitely the "psychological suspense" promised on the front cover. The prose is flowing, smooth, and intense. The dialogue natural and the characters very well fleshed-out. I couldn't put the book down, reading long into the night to finish it. Thank you Mr. Cannell for recommending this book. I, also, highly recommend it. I'm looking forward to reading more of Klavan's work. Enjoy!

  • This book is for everyone who loved Man and Boy. Tony Parsons is an incredible writer, with stories so believable you think they have to be true. My only issue with this second in a trilogy is the reiteration of information from the first one. Probably necessary for those who didn't read Man and Boy, but just a bit tedious. However, it's still a great read, and I would heartily recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good story, well told.

  • I read Man and Boy and was so excited for the next book. True to form, in Man and Wife, Mr. Parsons continued with his insightful documentation of the emotional turmoil he went through during his divorce. I secretly hoped in his second work, he and "Gina" would get back together. This series is so real, I recommended it to a man fighting over custody of his son. It documents with clarity what children of divorce should know about thier parents anguish, making decisions with and without regard to thier children's emotional outcome. It put into words, what causes a man to want to stray and sometimes with horrible outcomes. Such a sensitive author! Bravo!
