The Waterfall

Pre-Order   Ships 31 December 2026


Jane Gray, a poet whose husband leaves her shortly before the birth of their second child, considers herself a disaster area. That is, until the husband of her alter ego, cousin Lucy, climbs into her bed. Falling passionately in love for the first time, Jane finds her life transformed - but when a tragic accident exposes the affair to the world, she has to face the consequences ...

The Waterfall is a powerful novel about desire and obsession, the violent conflicts of maternal and sexual love, and the extent to which we are free to challenge the cards dealt by the hand of fate.

'Brilliant . . . persistently cool and elegant' New York Times Book Review
'Margaret Drabble [is] a master of the quiet novel' Kirsty Gunn, Financial Times
