Classic fiction (pre c 1945)
Man and Wife (1870) combines the fast pace and sensational plot of Collins's most famous novels with a biting attack on the inequitable marriage laws in Victorian Britain. At its centre is the plight of a woman who fears that the archaic marriage laws of Scotland and Ireland may have forced her into committing unintentional bigamy.

Reviews for Man and Wife

'Kevin Myers has produced a book that I couldn't put down... What he's written isn't a good book. It's a bad book, bad and bold and brilliant.' Olivia O'Leary, The Irish Times 'Watching the Door brings it all back: the sounds and the smells. In this bittersweet madeleine of a book, Kevin Myers recreates the moral and political slum that was Belfast, and dispels political illusions with irony and caustic wit. What a way to lose your youth.' Christopher Hitchens
