Unless Summary


Dazzling novel from Carol Shields, author of `The Stone Diaries', winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and `Larry's Party', winner of the Orange Prize. `Breathtaking...a masterpiece.' Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail Reta Winters has a loving family, good friends, and growing success as a writer of light fiction. Then her eldest daughter suddenly withdraws from the world, abandoning university to sit on a street corner, wearing a sign that reads only `Goodness'. As Reta seeks the causes of her daughter's retreat, her enquiry turns into an unflinching, often very funny meditation on society and where we find meaning and hope. `Unless' is a dazzling and daring novel from the undisputed master of extraordinary fictions about so-called `ordinary' lives.
