Summary
'Peter, Peter, Pumpkin eater, Had a wife and couldn't keep her.' Mrs Armitage has three husbands in her past, one in her present and a numberless army of children. They are building a great glass tower in the countryside, in which they will live happily ever after. Then, to her astonishment, she collapses in the Harrods linen section, 'sprinkling the stiff cloths with extraordinarily large tears', and finds that happiness is slipping beyond her reach. With ferocious intensity and wry, deadpan humour, Penelope Mortimer's semi-autobiographical 1960s story of a woman's breakdown dissects our most intimate relationships
