Mrs. Blood

By Audrey Thomas

“Women are at last beginning to talk about their bodies, not only among themselves, but also in print. When I began writing Mrs. Blood … this was not the case. So many women have come up to me and said, ‘Yes, I’ve been through that too—a messy miscarriage, a still birth, a bad abortion—but I never really talked about it—the pain, the fear, the futility of it all.’” Mrs. Blood is Audrey Thomas’ first novel—woman from the inside.

Mrs. Blood wears her nerve ends outside her skin like an updated Katherine Mansfield heroine—and she responds intensely to her external environment and to her subconscious. The effect is to create a vivid impression of a personality in crisis … A spectacular tour de force, this.”
