Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty-four-year-old Reta Winters, wife, mother, writer, and translator, is living a happy life until one of her three daughters drops out of university to sit on a downtown street corner silent and cross-legged with a begging bowl in her lap and a placard round her neck that says Goodness.

The final book from Pulitzer Prize-winner Carol Shields, Unless is a candid and deeply moving novel from one of the twentieth century's most accomplished and beloved authors.

Synopsis:

All her life Reta Winters has enjoyed the useful monotony of happiness with a loving family and growing success as a writer. Then her eldest daughter suddenly withdraws from the world to sit on a street corner, uncommunicative but for a sign around her neck bearing one word, "GOODNESS".

Synopsis:

Shields' Booker-shortlisted novel, which will be backed with a major outdoor poster and national press campaign, and which will be accompanied by a full repackaging of Shields' backlist. "Our most intelligent and beguiling observer..."Unless" is her most raw and intentful novel yet" "Sunday Times".
