Former headmaster Edward Jones cared for his wife, Beryl, for ten years until her death. Familiar with TS Eliot's exhortation that old men ought to be explorers, Edward considered there could be no... More > better ground for him to explore than the care of a beloved. Following Beryl’s death, Edward remembers the life and love that cannot, in Rilke's words, be ‘cancelled’ and continues to be grateful for the closeness her last years brought them. His hope is that in sharing his experiences, other carers and sufferers may see that despite what the medical profession seem to suggest, the initial diagnosis need not be a green light for surrender. This is a story of hope and courage, of music and silence and, above all, of love. Edward Jones’ experiences were the subject of a Radio 3 Twenty minutes programme in 2010: The Musical Path Through Dementia.< Less

Originally serialised in Harpers Weekly between 1898 and 1899, subsequently published in book form, The Awkward Age deals with the social mores of English upper class life. The plot revolves around... More > the young, attractive and intelligent Nanda, daughter of the Brookenhams, who has turned eighteen and entered that 'awkward age'. Her suitors include a young civil servant Vanderbank, who has little money behind him, and the rich but naïve Mitchy who may yet be in love with another. The novel is particularly heavy in dialogue and what narration it uses is loftily presented, away from the characters. By concentrating more on the dialogue, James allowed the plot to be presented from differing perspectives. Critics have noted similarities between this novel and the earlier, What Masie Knew, with Nanda as the more mature Maisie.< Less
