Stock Description

It opens with a snapshot: Kath, at an unknown gathering, hands clasped with a man not her husband, their backs to the camera. The photograph is in an envelope marked "Don't Open-Destroy." But Kath's husband Glyn, does not heed the warning. The mystery of the photograph, and of Kath herself, propels him on a journey of discovery in which he must peel back the years of their life together. A seductive and hugely suspenseful tale about death and memory, The Photograph examines our shifting perceptions of people after they die. "That, ' says Glyn, "is the whole point about the dead...They are beyond reach. The rest of us are still flailing around trying to make sense of things." With Lively's signature mastery of narrative and psychology, The Photograph explores a woman's beauty and its threat to her own happiness, the rivalry of sisters, a marriage in supreme crisis, and the cost of professional success as life unfolds. It is Penelope Lively at her very best, the dazzling and intriguing climax to all she has written before.
