An Ordinary Lunacy

(1963)
A novel by

 
When David Byfield sees Isobel for the first time at a party, he decides that he has fallen in love with her. An attractive and successful layer, David is being groomed for a political career; his experience with love and intimacy, however, is limited. Months after the party, Isobel's alcoholic husband is found dead in their shabby apartment, an apparent suicide. Then Isobel is accused of his murder and David steps up to defend her both as a lawyer and friend. But Isobel's case is more than her bargained for... Set in contemporary Sydney, Jessica Anderson's first novel is a perceptive and witty portrait of men and women caught between their desires and their obligations, and the choices we all make for - or in spite of - love.
