The Newspaper of Claremont Street by Elizabeth Jolley
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Newspaper of Claremont Street is the story of an old cleaning woman, known as Weekly, or 'The Newspaper.' Unknown to the residents of Claremont Street for whom she works, Weekly dreams of escape - escape from the parasitic demands of both her past and her present. She dreams of owning a small farm beyond the city. Weekly is one of those wiry survivors whose vulnerability is Jolley's special task of illumination. She is one of the author's outstanding achievements, and is created with humour, sharpness, not a little sympathy, and finally, a sort of desperate calm.
