Without a City Wall Summary


Without a City Wall by Melvyn Bragg

Disillusioned with his successful life in London, Richard Godwin moves to a remote Cumberland village in search of a more fulfilling existence. His arrival coincides with a birth of an illegitimate child to a local woman, binding her to a future she had hoped to escape. As these two outsiders struggle to come to terms with themselves - and each other - their passion, desperation and delight draw all those around them into conflict.

Without a City Wall Reviews


As near to being a work of art as makes no difference. I became more and more deeply and enjoyably immersed in this simple and profoundly moving modern morality tale * The Times *
A very good novel, simply about a man and a woman: traditional in form - it has a beautiful arch-like structure - and Lawrencian in tone * Daily Telegraph *
With this third novel Melvyn Bragg has become a writer of stature...Bragg has always been good at describing the bantering of youthful lovers. He excels himself here * Financial Times *
