Conrad & Eleanor

Author : Jane Rogers
Publisher : Harper Perennial (June 28, 2016)
Genre : Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

Book Review

From the multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed author of The Testament of Jessie Lamb comes this riveting novel about the devastating secrets revealed in the midst of a disintegrating marriage.

The story of a marriage, and of two lives in science.

When Conrad fails to return from a conference, Eleanor wonders if it is because of the affair she is having? Or perhaps it is because his research into transgenic monkey hearts is stalling; perhaps he is sick of having the less successful career of the two of them?  She is a leading expert in stem cell research. Their grown-up children suspect Eleanor of murdering their father; El secretly fears that what has driven Con away is his discovery of their daughter Cara’s parentage.

While his family in Manchester, England, scrabble for clues and reasons, Conrad—alone, confused, and on the run from a crazed animal rights activist—loses himself in the cold foggy streets of Bologna. He revisits the stages of his long marriage to El, from the happiness of the year of Cara’s birth to the grief and anger he now feels. Both partners are forced to re-examine their relationship, and, in the process, to move closer to an understanding of what it is that matters most to each of them.

Conrad and Eleanor is a radical, remarkably nuanced look at marriage.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Brilliantly done-a sustained exploration of the polarities at the enduring heart of love…In its every cell this remarkable novel reproduces the dialectic of a long marriage.” (The Guardian)

“A really clever, reflective and dispassionate scrutiny of a marriage in trouble.” (Daily Mail (London))

“A nuanced, pragmatic look at the long-married state…The novel’s strengths are the author’s intelligence, her avoidance of sentimentality, and the honest scrutiny she brings to bear on how intimate adult relationships age and settle.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Her observation of our species is tender, precise, illuminating.” (Hilary Mantel, author of WOLF HALL and BRING UP THE BODIES)

“Warm, wise, insightful, sharply observed and beautifully written.” (Marina Lewycka, author of A SHORT HISTORY OF TRACTORS IN UKRAINIAN)
