Tortoise v Hare The Rematch by Preston Rutt (/Paperback) | LoveReadingI positively covet books that have beautiful covers and these Virago designer classics are just stunning. I have quite a little collection of them going now and this cover, designed by the late Australian artist Florence Broadhurst, is one of my favourites. It reminds me of some embossed wallpaper that my grandparents used to have in their living room, actually- completely adorable. They all look so sweet lined up in my bookshelves. Though written decades ago, the themes of this book- marriage and relationships- are concepts that never date in fiction. That said, I would hope that some of the attitudes within the book have changed- and for the better. This book rewrites that old fable of the tortoise and the hare, though subtly reworks it in the context of marriage and relationships in this instance- whereby two women are competing for the affections of one man.
