After Leaving Mr Mackenzie

After Leaving Mr Mackenzie

Jean Rhys

1930 Penguin 1971

Recommendation: Reputation of author

Well written but totally melancholy. Why do respected writers always seem to describe miserable characters? In this case, Julia left her lover, the Mr Mackenzie of the title, but has herself been dropped by past lovers and currently by her family as well as a result of her chosen lifestyle. It cannot end well.

May 1983
