GIVEAWAY – 2 copies of Woman of a Certain Rage: Stratford-upon-Avon

21st November 2021

We are delighted to be able to offer 2 copies of Woman of a Certain Rage by Georgie Hall.

2 copies of Woman of a Certain Rage

A smart and funny novel about love, life and a second shot at freedom for rebellious women of a certain age.

Eliza is angry. Very angry, and very, very hot.

Late for work and dodging traffic, she’s still reeling from the latest row with husband Paddy. Twenty-something years ago, their eyes met over the class divide in oh-so-cool Britpop London, but while Paddy now seems content filling his downtime with canal boats and cricket, Eliza craves the freedom and excitement of her youth. Fifty sounds dangerously close to pensionable: her woke children want to cancel her, a male motorist has just called her a ‘mad old bat’ and to cap it all her hormones are on the run. Who knew menopause was puberty’s evil older sister?

But then a moment of heroism draws an unexpected admirer, and Eliza sets out to discover whether the second half of life can be a glass half full after all. She might suffer mental fog and night sweats – and have temporarily mislaid her waist – but this is her renaissance.

Woman of a Certain Rage is a smart and funny novel for all women who won’t be told it’s too late to shake things up.

Read our #TalkingLocationWith.. piece HERE and it’s all about the wonders of Stratford-upon-Avon, a gift of a setting to authors!

    It would be Julius Caesar. I went on a school trip to see it many years ago as we were reading it for O level. Really enjoyed it and would love to see it again one day.

    I’d love to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream, as it’s hilarious (in parts) and magical. Saw it at the RSC many years ago and I’ve never forgotten it so I’d love to see another production.

    I really love Shakespeare’s comedies and my favourite is Midsummer’s Nights Dream so that is the one I would like to see. I have seen several productions but would love to see the RSC production.

    Anything just so long as you get a seat. I went to the Globe and the standing through the whole performance was exhausting. Took the pleasure right out of it.


  49. User: KrissyMaria

    Always a Midsummer Nights Dream. The first Shakespeare play I saw in school and it left me in stitches.


  50. User: SueKelsoRyan

    Posted on: 21/11/2021 at 5:59 pm

    It sounds as though The Merry Wives of Windsor might be a good match for this novel!

    I have actually been fortunate enough to see the great and much missed Alan Howard in the lead role in Coriolanus at Stratford. It was a superb production.

    Romeo and Juliet – the first I ever read at school – the first one had the priveledge to star in at college too

    I should like to see Romeo and Juliet at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford upon Avon.
    It would be a trip down memory lane, as I spent holidays in Stratford as a child with my grandparents

    I think, given the subject matter, it would have to be ‘The Taming of the Shrew’.
