The Garrick Year

First edition
(publ. Weidenfeld & Nicolson)

The Garrick Year is the second novel by British novelist by Margaret Drabble first published in 1964. The novel is a first person account of Emma, a london wife and mother examining the fraught bits of her marriage and an affair.[1][2]


Drabble wrote the novel while living in Stratford-upon-Avon, thus focuses significantly on a satirical treatment of the theatre and actors.[3]


Kirkus reviews called the novel better than Drabble's debut novel A Summer Bird-Cage.[1]
