Book Summary of The Cupboard

When Erica March composes herself to die in a cupboard, she knows that Ralph Pears will find her. For at the age of 87, she had told the young journalist the richly colourful story of her life as novelist, political activist and, above all, lover, from childhood in Suffolk, Paris between the wars, to oblivion in post-war London. At the end of Ralph's patient probings only one secret remains: the mystery inside one constant object in her life - her cupboard

Another Parson's Egg of a book from Rose Tremain.At face value, this is the simple story of a young, aspiring American writer coming to England to find out the life story of a rather niche, octagenarian English lady novelist so that he can tell it in his small time journal....But like Russian dol...

Veronica October 02, 2010 review from Goodreads
