  • Résumé

Perfect Happiness is the fifth novel by Booker Prize winning author Penelope Lively.Frances, happily married for many years, and suddenly plunged into mourning. Her international celebrity husband Steve has died leaving her unprepared and vulnerable. At first she is completely submerged in her own loss until, shocked into feeling by the unexpected revelations and private sufferings of others, she is drawn agonizingly into new life - not into perfect happiness but into the sunlight of new hope. Penelope Lively's moving and beautifully observed novel illuminates two terrifying taboos of the twentieth-century - death and grief.'A triumph' SpectatorPenelope Lively is the author of many prize-winning novels and short-story collections for both adults and children.

She later won the 1987 Booker Prize for her highly acclaimed novel Moon Tiger.
