ePub A View of the Harbour (Virago Modern Classics) download
This is a neatly plotted book about three subjects that seem unappealing: an unlovely but nice old woman with good manners, the problem of getting through the end of life all alone, and betrayals even by people who like you. Yet it can be very funny and the plot twists are delicious. The era is the sixties, and taylor brings it all back to you, but at a grateful distance. When you finish it you may feel quite moved by it. I can see why this book had been short listed for the booker prize.
