Duet for Three

(1985)
A novel by

 

"In Duet for Three, Joan Barfoot's charting of family life is unsparing, painful, witty, and surprising. The cumulative effect is remarkably powerful."
Alice Munro


Elderly, fat, rebellious and rambunctious Aggie lives side by side with her aging daughter, June, in an uneasy, sometimes hostile relationship. As June contemplates moving Aggie into a nursing home and Aggie struggles to retain her wit and her wits, they await the decisive arrival of Aggies much-loved granddaughter, Junes daughter, Frances. Duet for Three displays Joan Barfoots usual technical mastery and compassionate insight into her characters lives, while offering a sensitive look at aging and the complex tensions and bonds among three generations of women.
