James Lawless
A middleaged librarian whose life and marriage are in a rut unravels the secrets of a suburban avenue
The story begins with a scantily-dressed girl dancing in a lighted window across from Francis Copeland’s house. Francis, now middleaged, whose life and marriage are in a rut, fantasises about the girl and finds it hard to accept, as he discovers later, that she is just plain Judy, a dancer in the local pub.
