Nourishment by Gerard Woodward


With her children evacuated and her husband at the front, Tory Pace is grudgingly sharing the family home with her irascible mother. Her quiet life is thrown into turmoil, however, when her prisoner-of-war husband, Donald, makes an outrageous demand for sexual gratification. He wants a dirty letter, by return of post!

Nourishment ranges widely across the Continent and yet always returns home: to family, to people, to relationships. Darkly comic and wholly engrossing, here is a prescient examination of the ways in which we both nurture and consume each other in the face of adversity.
