The Unknown Bridesmaid

When Julia was eight, she was asked to be a bridesmaid at her beautiful cousin Iris' wedding. Her mother saw this as a chore - expensive, inconvenient - but Julia was thrilled. When the time came, even the fact that her bridesmaid's dress didn't fit, and was plain cream rather than the pink she'd hoped for, couldn't ruin the day.

Portrait
Born in Carlisle, Margaret Forster is the author of many successful and acclaimed novels, including Have the Men Had Enough?, Lady's Maid, Diary of an Ordinary Woman, Is There Anything You Want?, Keeping the World Away, and Over, bestselling memoirs (Hidden Lives and Precious Lives) and biographies. She is married to writer and journalist Hunter Davies and lives in London and the Lake District.
Zitat
"Switching skilfully between the past and present, and exploring lifelong guilt and the need for redemption, Forster's novel makes such uncomfortable reading that at times you can barely turn the page, but it's so compelling that you have to" -- Anthony Gardner Mail on Sunday "Margaret Forster is a brilliant and prolific writer... her latest novel is one of her best... The book it most reminded me of, curiously enough, was Julian Barnes's The Sense of an Ending... Barnes, of course, won the Booker for his novel. I hope that Margaret Forster gets the recognition she deserves for this one" -- Elizabeth Day Observer "Nobody is better than Margaret Forster, with her clear calm prose, at delineating the fault lines of the ordinary, unexceptional and hidden lives" -- Jennifer Selway Daily Express "There is no one to match [Forster] for the way her assured,subtle and careful prose can detail the insecurities, torments and problems of what are, to all surface appearances, just nondescript, unremarkable and often half-lived lives" The Lady "An inversion of the usual formula, this is a journey away from self-knowledge... The stringent control with which Forster denies absolution is remarkable... fascinating" -- Freya McClelland Independent
