The Quiet Woman
Release Date: OUT NOW!
Author: Christopher Priest Publisher: Gollancz The reissues of Christopher Priest’s back catalogue continue with this 1990 release. Set in an oppressive alternate Britain where a Chernobyl- like disaster in France has spread fallout over the south of England, it follows Alice, a writer whose friend was murdered. Switching between the sometimes completely conflicting viewpoints of Alice and an “information management” expert, this satirical spin on life under Thatcher concludes in unsatisfyingly abrupt fashion.
