In this celebrated novel, Margaret Laurence writes with grace, power, and deep compassion about Rachel Cameron, a woman struggling to come to terms with love, with death, with herself and her world.
Trapped in a milieu of deceit and pettiness - her own and that of others - Rachel longs for love, and contact with another human being who shares her rebellious spirit. Through her summer affair with Nick Kazlik, a schoolmate from earlier years, she learns at last to reach out to another person and to make herself vulnerable.
"A Jest of God" won the Governor General's Award for 1966 and was released as the successful film, "Rachel, Rachel." The novel stands as a poignant and singularly enduring work by one of the world's most distinguished authors.
