The Newspaper of Claremont Street

The Newspaper of Claremont Street

by Elizabeth Jolley
Paperback
Publication Date: 01/01/2000
 

This is the story of an old cleaning woman, known as Weekly, or 'The Newspaper'. Unknown to the residents of Claremont Street, for whom she works, Weekly dreams of escape - escape from the parasitic demands of both her past and her present.
Weekly is one of Elizabeth Jolly's major creations; one of the wiry survivors whose vulnerability is Jolley's special task of illumination. This character is perhaps the author's outstanding achievement to date, and is created with humour, sharpness, not a little sympathy, and finally, a sort of desperate calm.
