Head of Zeus
The Fire-Dwellers
The Fire-Dwellers by Margaret Laurence, afterword by Liz Lochhead

Stacey Cameron, on the cusp of her forties, feels it's time for a change. Her marriage has worn threadbare and the children no longer need her. Should she have an affair? Take to drink? Or finally confront the woman in the mirror?

Written in Margaret Laurence's distinctive style, this is a vivid portrait of a woman convinced that life has more to offer her than the tedious routine of her days.

'Manawaka is a whole literary world ... The Fire-Dwellers pursues the pulp of present day [...] but it is proof of Margaret Laurence's genius that out of such stuff she makes something deep and rich and complex'
