Does anyone know the book or author I'm talking about? It's quite a slim book, and I saw it in a shop but can't remember the title.

Sure it's not Marguerite Duras? The Lover?

How about May Sarton?

She wrote a lot of books. Life and Death of Harriet Freane maybe?

... and that should be May Sinclair, not May Sarton.


That's what an argument at bed-time with your Beloved Infant will do to you. I'm cowering down here for a few moments before summoning my resilience and trying to get the Kraken back to bed.

Could it be 'Frost in May'?
