Milk and Honey

by Elizabeth Jolley

A self-absorbed young musician comes as a pupil-boarder to the house of an ‘old European’ family. Gradually his life is taken over and consumed, seemingly, by dark, mysterious forces within as much as outside himself. Milk and Honey is a strangely haunting novel.
