Free Love by Tessa Hadley

Cover of Free Love

I love Tessa Hadley’s writing. This is 1967 and suburban housewife Phyllis runs off with her younger lover leaving her two children and husband behind. You see how this affects everyone in the family and one of the things I like is how all the viewpoints complement each other, there’s no one victim, and you see how things wouldn’t have been perfect if Phyllis had stayed either. Really good character portraits all around.
