Games of Choice

(1976)
A novel by

 
 
Kingsley Pratt is a fortyish bookseller in a small New Zealand town. It is Christmas but this year the social rituals of the season strain to cover the tensions beneath. His daughter Miranda with her hairy English academic lover, his ruthless son Malcolm, and his brittle wife all are intent on pursuing their own games of choice -- Kingsley may interfere at his peril. Games of Choice is more than a black comedy of manners -- it is an acute portrayal of love and marriage in New Zealand in the early '70s by New Zealand's foremost novelist.
