Joyful

by Robert Hillman | 31 July 2015
Leon is a man unburdened by sexual desire. Nonetheless he adores his wife, only partly for the way she wears his collection of haute couture, and when she becomes ill and dies he is shattered. Then he discovers her correspondence with an unknown lover, and his suffering veers towards madness. Leon hunkers down at his neglected country property, 'Joyful', with the entire local supply of whiskey and a bizarre plan to retrieve (posthumously) Tess's devotion. In this extraordinary comedy, Robert Hillman evokes his characters with kindness, grace and wit.
