About This Book

Her husband Keith's illness with Parkinson's Disease and his poetry gave Gillian Jones the impetus to write A Misted Mirror. Structured around the poetry, the novel imagines and explores the life together of a fictional couple, Sarah and David, with flashbacks to before they met, and chronicles David's later decline with Parkinson's Disease and dementia. This is a powerful and compelling story, of a young man sowing wild oats in Africa, confronting his demons in the hothouse of a London arts community, and finding pleasure and satisfaction in a second marriage, family and career. The results of his illness come as a heartrending contrast but mitigated by a generous late-flowering of his poetry.
