"After Leaving Mr Mackenzie" is a brilliant, yet brutal, portrait of a woman struggling to retrieve both life and love.

For six months, Julia has lived alone in a drab Parisian hotel on an allowance from her ex-lover, Mr. Mackenzie. When his cheques stop, Julia decides to leave France and return to London.

The tale of her ten day visit contains some of Jean Rhys' most sensitive, poignant writing.

Past her prime, exhausted by broken love affairs and addled by drink, Julia is tragically unable to find what she really wants - love.
