Synopsis

Mildred Pierce by James M. Cain

MILDRED PIERCE is the story of a determined and ambitious woman who, after her feckless husband abandons her, builds a successful business through hard work and sacrifice in order to ensure the future of her pampered and selfish daughter. But she isn't prepared for the intrigues and devastating betrayals of those closest to her.

Reviews

Cain's grasp of human deviousness has rarely been equalled. -- Simon Shaw DAILY MAIL Forget the Kate Winslet television adaptation, this is the real deal, a hothouse of suppressed emotions, jealousy, sexual tension, and rage told in elegant prose. CATHOLIC HERALD A supreme timeless classic. TELEGRAPH & ARGUS
