 About the Book 

So spontaneous is the writing in A Lifetime Burning, one might believe these are indeed words of a woman desperately trying to understand what has happened to her life, beginning with the fact that her husband has stopped sleeping with her.Why? IsMoreSo spontaneous is the writing in A Lifetime Burning, one might believe these are indeed words of a woman desperately trying to understand what has happened to her life, beginning with the fact that her husband has stopped sleeping with her.Why? Is there a rival--perhaps The Toad, the unattractive housewife next door--or someone else, who will completely surprise the reader, as do many of the events of the protagonists story? At age sixty-two, Corinne must grapple with the most painful truth that her lifelong passion--which is anyones passion, to love and be loved, body and soul--could burn unquenched forever. Her imaginative narrative even when she is lying is as revealing as bedrock truth. A Lifetime Burning is as real as life itself--a novel shimmering and vital and recognizably true. Gripping, smart, suspenseful, and at times, wonderfully witty, Douglass widely acclaimed book forms a searching and searing record of love, anger, confession, and discovery.
