Cuckoo
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Cuckoo
Become your own protagonist…Cuckoo is the story of several women whose lives are interwoven with a common thread – the unassuming, but ever-present, Prue. At first a little girl in the charge of her pious grandmother, the parentless Prue grows into an introverted and self-conscious adolescent. Perpetually on the fringes of the affairs of her friends and family, she plays a bit-part as a meek nuisance until she finds an older man and is suddenly propelled into a lead role. Anne Piper’s second novel is full of wit, subtle studies of character and an unadorned wisdom about love, requited and not, and the relationship between the sexes.Praise for Anne Piper“The Cuckoo is Prue, a gawky, ungainly, adolescent, brought up in perhaps a too sophisticated menage. Becoming, as such children are apt to do, attractive and nearly (but not quite) grown-up with startling suddenness, she finds herself in a nest which should have rightly belonged either to the wife who had befriended her, or to the would-be mistress who happens to be her aunt.” — Continental Daily Mail“If by any chance you are a girl who thinks herself plain and unlovable, read Cuckoo for consolation and caution. It is not a manual of beauty treatment and feminine lure, but a novel that will teach you exactly how unreliable men are, and how unsentimental.” — Daily Dispatch“A brilliantly successful second novel, the history of an unwanted girl who finds, to her confusion, that she can attract any man she likes. Miss Piper has a great future.” — Good Housekeeping“Readers of Anne Piper’s amoral but quite delicious first novel Early to Bed, will not be disappointed by her Cuckoo, for it has many of the same qualities and they are developed with even more subtlety and skill.” — Rochdale Observer“Frolic in the lightest possible tone … often deliciously funny.” — Sunday TimesAnne Piper was born in Llandaff, Cardiff. She studied English at Newnham College, Cambridge, where she met David Piper – the later novelist and director of the National Portrait Gallery, Fitzwilliam Museum and the Ashmolean – whom she married in 1945 after his release from a Japanese prisoner of war camp. A socialite and activist, she was a lead participator in the nuclear disarmament marches on Aldermaston in the ’50s and ’60s. Between 1952 and 1979, she published nine novels, one of which, Yes, Giorgio (1961) was made into a film starring Luciano Pavarotti. Her play The Man-Eaters was produced at the Bristol Old Vic in 1959. She died in 2017 at the age of 96.
