A funny, satirical tale of English mothers on the brink of rebellion, Arlington Park is a novel for the ages. Set over the course of one rainy day in an ordinary English suburb, Arlington Park is a viciously funny portrait of a group of young mothers, each bound to their families, each straining for some kind of independence: Juliet, enraged at the victory of men over women in family life; Amanda, warding off thoughts of death with obsessive housework; Solly, about to give birth to her fourth child; Maisie, struggling to accept provincial life; and Christine, the optimist and host of a dinner party where the neighbors come together.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A domestic adventure about the perils of modern privilege that is as smartly satirical as it is warmly wise.” Elle
“Much of the satirical drama of Arlington Park simmers just below the superficial veneer of suburbia. Many of these women seethe with rage and violence in their minds or behind the closed doors of their vaultlike homes…Sharp wit and commanding prose.” New York Times
“Cusk’s frank acknowledgment of maternal ambivalence is rare and wonderful.” Entertainment Weekly
“Devastating…Incisively vivid.” Publishers Weekly
“No one has written better about what, I suppose, is generally known as female experience…All of it is familiar from life but not (thus far) from literature. Everything about Arlington Park is original and fearless.” Bookforum
“Cusk’s glory is her style, cold and hard and devastatingly specific, empathetic but not sympathetic.” Los Angeles Times
“Hideously funny…A novel with a sense of rightness at its core and a narrative intelligence so swift and piercing it can take your breath away.” Boston Globe
