Product description

Review

`Very funny. You never know this woman's name but, my God, you know her voice ... The Widow's Tale more than equals [Jackson's] astonishing debut. He's back.' --The Times

`It is the widow's vulnerable sassiness that lingers longest in the memory. Jackson delights in detailing her anxieties and obsessions ... weaving them into a thoroughly convincing and often very funny emotional portrait.' --Sunday Telegraph

`Finely-judged ... her Tale perfectly captures the disorientation that comes with grief and brings it to life against the big skies, grainy light and salt tang of an east coast winter.' --Guardian

`Likeable, believable and often funny ... the book is about coping with the everyday rather than the miraculous. Perhaps it is all the braver for it.' --Daily Telegraph

`Jackson's widow, with her tart observations about life and men, is great company. Like a glass of spicy red wine, this is a book to swig back and enjoy.'
--Daily Mail

Book Description

The Widow's Tale by Mick Jackson is the long awaited third novel from the Booker Prize shortlisted author of Five Boys and The Underground Man.
