Five Acre Virgin

by Elizabeth Jolley

This fine collection introduces the unique fictional world of Elizabeth Jolley. With a comic, yet disurbing vision, these stories are a sympathetic exploration of the lives of ordinary, although sometimes slightly eccentric, people. Their wry hopes, their courage, their moments of tenderness and understanding in the face of despair, are all presented with sensitivity and a quiet humour.
