Eating Peacocks by Barbara Else

Regular price $13.50 Sale

Delia's body lay flat as a piece of paper, blank, as if everything on it had scurried off over the side.Delia Whittborne finds herself in a hospital bed, but can't recall how she got there, or even who she is. As her memory slowly returns, she realises it's not just her recent past and love-life she needs to make sense of, but her early childhood on her grandparents' farm and the barn with the peacocks strutting round outside.This poignant, funny novel explores the intricate influences of memory and experience, invention and deception, as the feisty but vulnerable Delia regains physical and psychological strength. Subtle and assured, Eating Peacocks marks a new development in Barbara Else's exploration of male-female relationships and family life. It displays all the quick wit and piercing irony we have come to associate with the work of one of New Zealand's most amusing and popular novelists. This 1998 Vintage Books Paperback is in Good condition.
