Listen to Arlington Park on your phone!
Amid the leafy avenues and comfortable houses, the residents of Arlington Park live out the dubious accomplishments of civilisation: material prosperity, personal freedom, and moral indifference. Men work, women look after children, and people generally do what's expected of them. Set over the course of a single rainy day, this novel moves from one household to another, and through the passing hours conducts a deep examination of its characters' lives: of Juliet, Amanda, Solly and Maisie. And of Christine, whose troubled, hilarious spirit presides over Arlington Park and the way of life it represents.
