A Jest of God

A duty-ridden woman dreams of breaking free from her small-town chains.

'A Jest of God holds a special place for me ... I found it an almost perfect book, in that it did what it set out to do, with no gaps and no excesses. Like a pool or a well, it covers a small area but goes down deep ... plain, self-contained, elegant in form, holding within it the essentials of life' Margaret Atwood.
