Clare, like Marion, is a woman of a certain age whose much-loved husband of thirty-odd years has just died. And Clare, like Marion, is a novelist.With the loss of such a marriage of true minds and kindred spirits Clare finds herself building a cathedral of grief - and reeling into the arms of an old friend. Life and writing loop and spiral around Clare and the central enormous fact of her husbands death.The Fog Garden is a rollercoaster of a story about the nature of fiction and how life creates art, how adultery can be liberating and how sex doesnt stop with age, and how grief is as much a gift as love.Halligan has crafted a poignant and powerful novel, playing all the time on that dangerous ground between her own life and that of her heroine.
