Two plays by acclaimed British novelist Margaret Drabble.

"As in her novels, Drabble is revealed in the plays as an acute observer of the changing mores and intractable presumptions that mark British life, but also as a consummate artist, adept at adjusting her vision—and tuning her ear—to the demands of a different medium. With the fascinating critical commentary here by Fernandez et al., this volume will prove essential for any study of Drabble and of the role of women and the fate of the middle class in post-war Britain."—Michael Coffey, former co-editorial director, Publishers Weekly

Praise for Margaret Drabble . . .
"Gorgeous writing . . . [Drabble’s] flawed and oh-sohuman characters appall and enthrall."—Boston Globe

"As meticulous as Jane Austen, and as deadly as Evelyn Waugh."—Los Angeles Times

"Even after several decades of close investigation, the role played by women writers in the theatre and television of the 1960s remains frustratingly hidden. This timely book, gathering together two previously unavailable plays by one of the most significant female novelists of the late twentieth century, helps to fill the gap."—David Pattie, University of Birmingham
